Old Journal Entries 2016-12-14

In all of my “getting organized”, I have found an old journal which I started in 1998.

The opening of the book reads:

December 28, 1998: This book is extras from old journals and writings and the beginnings of new. “The wise an reads both books and life itself. Lin Yutang”  The World Around Me, Michelle Renee’ Abbott

I have decided to add from this journal as well to my blog.  The pages are barely held in place and I find it cute, some of the things that caught my eye almost two decades ago…

If eyes are for the seeing, then beauty is its own excuse. William Shakespeare

“Loves Philosophy”

The fountains mingle with the river and the rivers with the ocean; The winds of heaven mix forever with a sweet emotion; Nothing in this world is single; all things by a law divine, in one spirit mix and mingle. Why not I with thine?

See the mountains kiss the heaven and the waves clasp one another; No sister-flower would be forgiven, if it disdained its brother. And the sunlight clasps the earth and the moonbeams kiss the sea; what is all this sweet work worth if thous kiss not me.

~Percy Byshe-Shelley
