• When every leaf is a flower

    One evening near dark, I lost myself as I wandered, looking for turning leaves around the place.

    “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”  Albert Camus French


    “the quicker you are in attaching verbal or mental labels to things, people, or situations, the more shallow and lifeless your reality becomes, and the more deadened you become to reality, the miracle of life that continuously unfolds within and around you.” E Tolle

    Another leaf miner et leaf

    “If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change” Buddha

    “when you look at it or hold it and let it be without imposing a word or mental label on it, a sense of awe, of wonder, arrives within you.” E Tolle
