Inspiration from the Vintage Garden: Three Sisters with Plant, Hoe, and a Watering Can


With rake and seeds and sower,
And hoe and line and reel,
When the meadows shrill with “peeping”
And the old world wakes from sleeping,
Who wouldn't be a grower
That has any heart to feel?
Frederick Frye Rockwell, “Invitation,” Around the Year in the Garden

It's the little things citizens do. That's what will make the difference.
My little thing is planting trees.
Wangari Maathai

I believe in process. I believe in four seasons. I believe that winter's tough, but spring's coming. I believe that there's a growing season. And I think that you realize that in life, you grow. You get better.

Inspiration from a Vintage Landscape: Moonlight Stroll Across Snowy Fields


We feel cold, but we don't mind it, because we will not come to harm.
And if we wrapped up against the cold, we wouldn't feel other things,
like the bright tingle of the stars, or the music of the aurora,
or best of all the silky feeling of moonlight on our skin. It's worth being cold for that.
Philip Pullman, The Golden Compass

The true joy of a moonlit night is something we no longer understand. Only the men of old, when there were no lights, could understand the true joy of a moonlit night.
Yasunari Kawabata, Palm-of-the-Hand Stories

i want to be
in love with you

the same way
i am in
love with the moon

with the light
shining
out of its soul.
Sanober Khan
