“Being content is perhaps no less easy than playing the violin well: and requires no less practice.” ~ Alain de Botton

Today I’m flying low and I’m
not saying a word
I’m letting all the voodoos of ambition sleep.
The world goes on as it must,
the bees in the garden rumbling a little,
the fish leaping, the gnats getting eaten.
And so forth.
But I’m taking the day off.
Quiet as a feather.
I hardly move though really I’m traveling
a terrific distance.
Stillness. One of the doors
into the temple.
My daughter took this photo of some sprouts rising up from within a fallen tree trunk. She says what she loves most about it is that it’s reminder to pay attention to the little things, because “the little things are often what’s most important.”
I don’t know if I should ask for forgiveness here, but quarantine has us finding ways to play the #TussenKunstEnQuarantaine challenge. ... with goats. . .
The Challenge means "between art and quarantine," and if you search online, you'll see some FANTASTIC recreations of famous paintings and images.
Having the time and ability to devote some effort to this project, I am now about to present you with Boise Goat Yoga's interpretation of some images.
