“Each day is different, precious, essential, worthy…”

“No one else has access to the world you carry around within yourself; you are its custodian and entrance. No one else can see the world the way you see it or feel your life the way you feel it. Your soul alone knows the geography of your destiny; it has the map of your future, therefore you can trust this indirect, oblique side of yourself. If you do, it will take you where you need to go, but more important it will teach you a kindness of rhythm in your journey. Each day is different, precious, essential, worthy; your life becomes the shape of the days you inhabit.”(“Anam Cara” by John O’Donohue, Irish philosopher, poet and scholar)


from our backyard to you all, wishing you my very best: health, courage, patience…

N.B. “Anam” is the Irish word for “soul” and “Ċara” is the word for “friend”; in the Anam-Ċara friendship, you were joined in an ancient way with the friend of your soul. This was a bond that neither space nor time could damage, awakened an eternal echo in the hearts of the friends; they entered into a circle of intimate belonging with each other. The Anam-Ċara friendship afforded a spiritual space to all the other longings of the human heart. Both the Celts and the Irish believed that everyone, either directly or on a more subconscious level, sought to find their “soul mate” throughout their life. Without an “anam cara”, they could never be fully understood or seen as they really are; thus, anyone who has, at least, an “anam cara”, has reached that most sacred place called HOME…

  1. Excellent post and lovely flowers, Mélanie! MERCI!

  2. Si vrai, Melanie. Your backyard is lovely! Leslie xoxo

  3. Toporași, avem și noi. Iarna asta au fost supărați, de obicei sunt infloriți toată iarna.

    • V-as trimite cu placere, caci avem curtea plina de toporasi de circa 2 saptamâni; se numesc “violettes de Toulouse” si sunt florile-simbol ale orasului nostru…

      • Mulțumesc, am vreo două zone cu toporași. Sunt suficienți. Uneori, oricât de mare ți-ar fi gradina, nu ți-e de ajuns. La noi, au măcar câteva floricele tot timpul, inclusiv sub zăpadă. Doar iarna asta nu le-a prea plăcut.
