Imagining life in autumn colours 🍂

“O Solitude! if I must with thee dwell, Let it not be among the jumbled heap Of murky buildings; climb with me the steep, — Nature's observatory—whence the dell, Its flowery slopes, its river's crystal swell, May seem a span; let me thy vigils keep 'Mongst boughs pavillion'd, where the deer's swift leap Startles the wild bee from the fox-glove bell. But though I'll gladly trace these scenes with thee, Yet the sweet converse of an innocent mind, Whose words are images of thoughts refin'd, Is my soul's pleasure; and it sure must be Almost the highest bliss of human-kind, When to thy haunts two kindred spirits flee” -John Keats

“Dear Lady, Queen of Solitude, I thank you with my heart, For keeping me so close to Thee While so many, oh so many stood apart.” -Leonard Cohen

“And I like large parties, they are so intimate. At small parties there isn’t any privacy.” -F. Scott Fitzgerald

Cosmogyral: whirling around the universe
Ichi-go ichi-e (Japanese): one time, one meeting; an encounter that only happens once in a lifetime, reminding one to treasure every moment for it will never recur.
