Take nothing but pictures. Leave nothing but footprints. Kill nothing but time.
"In the glow of the dawn, Welcome a new day, Greet the golden sunlight or rain, Nature in all its subtlety. Whip of the wind, Earth unfolds, Softly falling rain, Growing plants and buds blossoming. Visions of the earth, with glories of nature, Beauty of the daffodils, Sunshine and rain from a rainbow, Awe! Nature in full bloom."
- Blanche Black - "Springtime"
I wish you a great Spring week my dear Friend. With Love Ana
"The April rain, the April rain, Comes slanting down in fitful showers, Then from the furrow shoots the grain, And banks are fledged with nestling flowers; And in grey shawl and woodland bowers The cuckoo through the April rain Calls once again."
- Mathilde Blind - "April Rain"
I wish you dear Friend a weekend with peace and that you enjoy Mother Earth beauty. With Love Ana
"I think over again my small adventures My fears, those small ones that seemed so big For all the vital things I had to get and reach And yet there is only one great thing The only thing To live to see the great day that dawns And the light that fills the world."

... another monday, a new week. I wish you dear Friend, a perfect one With Love Ana
What if you slept? And what if, in your sleep, you dreamed? And what if, in your dream, you went to heaven and there plucked a strange and beautiful flower? And what if, when you awoke, you had the flower in your hand? Ah, what then?
- Samuel Taylor Coleridge -
... I wish you my dear Friend a week full of dreams With Love Ana
Only a night from old to new! Always a night from old to new! And in the first day, My wishes are few: The beginning of the end Of all wars in the world That all the soldiers safe return home The beginning of the end Of the prejudice, intolerance, racism Hunger, greed, attacks to life. After that night is the first new dawn And may we can start from the beginning, Living together, without haste In union with kind Mother Earth.
... I wish you a new year full of Love and Peace my Friend Ana
