Have a brave, optimistic and safe March, pals!

“Change of any sort does require courage. I love those moments when (almost!) everything seems possible, BUT courage doesn’t always ‘roar’. Sometimes, it’s the quiet voice at the end of the day whispering: I will try again tomorrow!”(Mary Anne Radmacher – American artist and writer)

from me to you: colorful pansies from our village where they’ve always been popular; in French “une pensée” means both ‘thought’ & ‘pansy’, hence, pansies are 5-petal flowers that sometimes grow inside our mind and most of them may have a soul; friendly thoughts, take care and stay safe, guys!

“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.

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)

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…
