Green Thoughts for Friday

Hope your week has been fabulous. Here are some green thoughts for your weekend and in celebration of beautiful spring time weather.

I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, ‘This is what it is to be happy.’

― Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar


In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.

― Margaret Atwood, Bluebeard’s Egg


Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience

-Ralph Waldo Emerson


And finally, a little morsel of poetry:

by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
As a fond mother, when the day is o’er,
Leads by the hand her little child to bed,
Half willing, half reluctant to be led,
And leave his broken playthings on the floor,
Still gazing at them through the open door,
Nor wholly reassured and comforted
By promises of others in their stead,
Which, though more splendid, may not please him more;
So Nature deals with us, and takes away
Our playthings one by one, and by the hand
Leads us to rest so gently, that we go
Scarce knowing if we wish to go or stay,
Being too full of sleep to understand
How far the unknown transcends the what we know.


May your weekend be peaceful, green, and balmy!
