The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside,

somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God.

Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be

and that God wishes to see people happy,

amidst the simple beauty of nature.

- Anne Frank

Love the quote, Carol. I also wanted to tell you that I have read the book that your book club is doing this month, and it is one of my absolute favorites. I loved the simplicity of telling such a complex story. If that makes sense :-).

What a lovely post! I'm assuming these photos are from your yard? I really like the quote from Anne Frank. How inspirational that she could be so wise and have such wisdom in a world that showed her such cruelty. A very beautiful post in so many ways. Thank you!

C!!! These are beautiful...R and I are enjoying them. I am loving the quote and thinking that it is SO very true (coming from a woman who is not wanting to leave nature and go "home")

I could sit and look at those beautiful pictures and listen to the soothing song for a real long time. They just make me feel good inside. Don't be surpsired if one day you come home from school to find me sitting in your backyard soking it all in. :o)
