surprise discovery

We find beauty not in the thing itself

but in the patterns of shadows, light

and the darkness, that one thing

against another creates.

~Jun’ichiro Tanizaki

for all the beautiful ways of being….

inquiry for today~ what is beautiful today?

quiet storms

I will not die an unlived life.

I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire.

I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me,

to make me less afraid, more accessible; to loosen my heart until it

becomes a wing, a torch, a promise.

I choose to risk my significance, to live so that which came to me

as seed goes to the next as blossom, and that which came to me as

blossom, goes on as fruit.

~Dawna Markova
