A River Runs Through It

“Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it.
The river was cut by the world's great flood
and runs over rocks from the basement of time.
On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops.
Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.”
~ Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It

“Grace and beauty originates from within -- the light 
that glows out and make everything beautiful” ~ Angie Karan

« Le bonheur est comme la neige : il est doux, il est pur et... il fond. » ~ Claire Malesset 
["Happiness is like snow: it's soft, it's pure melts.]

On yet another dreary rainy January day, my Google Photos reminded me that four years ago today, I was in Paris amid eight inches of freshly fallen snow! This is a favorite photo that I've never shared. Although, I hope for warmer weather when I return next month, I will never forget how magical Paris was sous la neige.

"Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, 
order, rhythm, and harmony." ~  Thomas Merton

"But then, in spite of us, and without our permission, there comes at last an end to the bitter frosts. One morning the wind turns, and there is a thaw.  And so I must still have hope." ~ Vincent Van Gogh

[I'm not fooling myself that winter in Wisconsin is over, but today, like the ducks, I celebrate the open water and the hope of an early spring.]
