"People from a planet without flowers
would think we must be mad with joy the whole time
to have such things about us."

Symbiotic Passion


"Give and Take...
For to the bee a flower is a fountain of life
And to the flower a bee is a messenger of love
And to both, bee and flower,
the giving and the receiving is a need and an ecstasy." 
~Kahlil Gibran~

Thanks, Brian, Suz and Dirt Lover and Jojo. I so appreciate your comments.
Yes, Jojo, read Gibran. He had so many good insights into living and relationships.

“The appearance of things change according to the emotions and thus we see magic and beauty in them, while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves. -Kahlil Gilbran.”
We can learn from looking to ourselves first when there is conflict. Our minds can do amazing things. Buddha said,
"We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world."
