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.

“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.

The Perfection of Stillness

“The Perfection of Stillness”  |  Anthony Satori

It is a uniquely pleasurable sensation to observe “daytime” things under the darkness and quiet of night. There is something deeply peaceful and reassuring about seeing a place that is usually filled with noise, activity, people, and words, and rather seeing it in a state of silence and calm, lacking nothing, existing complete and beautiful in the perfection of its stillness.BlogImage-footd2
