Beauty, spines, and determination

Life is thickly sown with thorns, and I know no other remedy than to pass quickly through them. The longer we dwell on our misfortunes, the greater is their power to harm us.

Where there's a will, there's a way

A mourning dove rests

A goose family heads for the pond

Another dove arrives;
They wait for the night.

Enjoying the view 

A bit of an itch 

Up on the roof

Blooms and blossoms

Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.
~Rainer Maria Rilke

Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night.
~Rainer Maria Rilke, "Letters of Rainer Maria Rilke"
