How to be small..

We must remain as close to the flowers, the grass, and the butterflies as the child is who is not yet so much taller than they are. We adults, on the other hand, have outgrown them and have to lower ourselves to stoop down to them. Whoever would partake of all good things must understand how to be small at times.
~Friedrich Nietzsche

I my garden the little ones take good care of the small ones...

Oh dearest,

How true, how VERY TRUE....we must lower ourselves to the place we were actually mean to be....at a level with all things small but in reality, who hold such grand secrets to life and love...look at this image; so sweet and reminiscent of a little fairy I know.....

What bliss. What peace and joy to know YOU and to speak with the animals....peace to you today, Nita

Vanmiddag liep ik buiten over de straat om een brief te posten en zag vlinders, hommels en bijen om mij heen vliegen en fladderen.
Ook zag ik zonnebloemen, niet geel, maar oranje-rood van kleur, heel bijzonder.
Overal stond ik even stil en bewonderde het kleine gedoe.
Heerlijk !
