my beloved cone flowers









“if i were called upon to state in a few words the essence of everything i was trying to say, it would be something like this:
listen to your life.
see it for the fathomless mystery that it is.
in the boredom and pain of it no less than in the excitement and gladness:
touch, taste, smell your way to the holy and hidden heart of it because in the last analysis, all moments are key moments, and life itself is grace.”
