As it was given to me by others

so I afford it to you the same

that you may pass it on in time

to others deserving of the name.

  1. How exciting! I actually featured that painting too. Sometimes only the peacefulness of nature can reconnect us with our deepest selves. Your words work wonderfully with the painting, a short and meaningful meditation.


    1. Thank you so much Gabriela! That’s so cool that you wrote about him. I will have to find it in your archive. I only discovered Roerich yesterday, and he’s such an inspiration. And his work is so contemplative. It’s calming just to look at. My favorite so far is one called Blessed Soul.

      1. I know what you mean, I feel so recharged looking at his works. I love all his Himalaya paintings, it would be difficult to choose a favorite. AND he lived the most interesting life too! Such an amazing man.
