“Look within.  Within is the fountain of good, and it will ever bubble up, if thou wilt ever dig.”

— Marcus Aurelius

I’ve always been fascinated with, and delighted by, flowers that bloom at night, or in the heart of winter.  I find the mere existence of such joyfully contrarian and ebullient elements in nature to be both refreshing and inspiring.  Winter-blooming flowers are truly demonstrating what it means to dig into one’s own innate “fountain of good,” and to create one’s own most pure and natural beauty from within one’s own true self.

“Shadows.  Sometimes people don’t see shadows.  The Chinese, of course, never paint them in pictures, oriental art never deals with shadow.  But I noticed these shadows and I knew it meant it was sunny.”

“Night Jasmine”  |  Anthony Satori

“Twas midnight — through the lattice, wreathed with woodbine, many a perfume breathed from plants that wake when others sleep, from timid jasmine buds that keep their fragrance to themselves all day, but when the sunlight dies away let their delicious secret out to every breeze that roams about.”

— Thomas Moore
