Sunbeam…

A single sunbeam is enough

to drive away many shadows.

Bees…

The men of experiment are like the ant;
they only collect and use.
But the bee…gathers its materials
from the flowers of the garden and of the field,
but transforms and digests it by a power of its own.
Leonardo da Vinci

HONEYCOMB – Heidenheim, Germany

Beach glass …

It was beautiful not despite but because of the friction it has had to endure. It had been thrashed around, but instead of being destroyed, it was improved with every scratch and scrape, sculpted. In fact, the scuffs themselves are what gave it its quiet splendor; they are responsible for turning a simple piece of glass (which could have just as easily been trash) into a gem. (Wendy Blackburn)
