Just a few short weeks after NASA landed the Insight rover on the surface of Mars, the Chinese space program successfully landed a probe on the previously unexplored “dark side” of the moon.  What wonderful accomplishments!  I cannot wait to find out what we see, what we discover, and what we can all learn from these missions.  Science, art, nature, spirituality — these are such crucial areas of exploration, because they each, in their own way, make us realize how we all, as humans, have so much more in common than we have differences between us.

The Fountain of Good

“Winter Flowers”  |  Anthony Satori

“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.

After The Rain

“After the Rain”  |  Anthony Satori

Not long after the fires were gone, the rain came, bringing renewed fertility to the earth.  Grass began to grow again on the floor of the valley.  Wide expanses of bright green blades began to sprout up, rising literally from the ashes, like a phoenix from the flame, like a second springtime in the heart of December. 

Soon to follow, out from the hills, there ventured a small family of deer, timidly exploring the newly lush landscape.  They explored shyly at first, but quickly grew confident and eager, feeling an intense hunger arise from within them.  It was not long before they abandoned all restraint and feasted ravenously on the freshly grown grass until they could eat no more.

Given even the slightest chance, life always finds a way.
