“Do you not know yet? Throw the emptiness out of your arms
to add to the spaces we breathe; maybe the birds
will feel the expansion of air, in more intimate flight.
Yes, the Spring-times needed you deeply. Many a star
must have been there for you so you might feel it. A wave
lifted towards you out of the past, or, as you walked
past an open window, a violin
gave of itself.”
– Rainer Maria Rilke’s, First Elegy
Thank you, Sylvie, for sharing this expression of spirit at a moment when so many of us needed the reminder. It encapsulates perfectly the values you live daily, to inspire people to operate from their truest selves and to connect authentically with others, with their environment, to create and derive the greatest value we can in this life. This is the next step in our evolution as human beings – remembering that we ARE human beings, which means that we exist from, of and for nature, and for each other. I have never felt spring more strongly than I do this year. Perhaps because of the intensity of the rains that preceded them, the intoxicating fragrance of the blossoms takes my breath away as never before. Wishing you a breathtaking spring!
Thank you for the great invite – and the reminder that I am needed for spring to feel appreciated!
A wonderful, inspired idea! I wish I could take part, but unfortunately will be in Sydney at that time. Keep up the positive, uplifting thinking!
Thanks for the invite! When Where?
Interested – pl send more details
Great idea! Do we just go to our own park? Is there a central big gathering?
