Drinking from the River–December 2016

My friend, I am going to tell you the story of my life, as you wish;

and if it were only the story of my life I think I would not tell it;

for what is one man that he should make much of his winters,

even when they bend him like a heavy snow?

Today we are searching for things in nature that are hidden behind the veil of appearance…

We look for and paint this inner, spiritual side of nature.

          –Franz Marc

For one swallow does not make a summer, nor does one day; and so too one day, or a short time, does not make a man blessed and happy.
