Like many people, I stumble upon a lot fun, touching, or interesting things online, which I often share for other people to enjoy. (I also stumble across a lot of outrage, but I’m trying to get away from sharing most of that. It seems the world is mad enough without my encouragement.) But I’ve noticed that there is one category that seems to be neglected: the beautiful. It seems that things that are lovely — be it art or literature or nature — aren’t very clickable without some hook.
Beauty for beauty’s sake is missing in our culture. Everything has to have a message or a purpose or a goal. Every story has to have a moral. If you share a picture of something wonderful in the natural world or a beautiful image of humanity, you must be sure to include a call to action/petition to sign/cause to join. Or even worse, it’s shared with a “90% of people won’t even share this; don’t be like those hateful monsters.”
So I’m going to try to deliberately search out the beautiful and share it. I’m starting with beauty that is in our world today — beauty in my neighborhood and beauty by a living artist. I hope you enjoy this beauty and search out the beautiful in your own life — and share it with others.
The Peace of Wild Things

When despair grows in me
The numbers of arrests of people selling counterfeit versions of cialis 5mg sale look at this now, cialis, having been charged with, and convicted of, violating the Trade Marks Act of 1994. It is a viagra cost india well-known and indisputable fact that people who want to be healthy need to eat healthy; but promises of more attractive skin, taut abs and increased don’t always measure up to the allure of a steaming-hot plate of Buffalo wings and a draft Pilsner. Third, you underwent many tests cialis generic 10mg that revealed severe structural changes in the bile duct, pancreas, and sphincter of Oddi. The Agni is mainly situated in Jatara or in upper part of digestive system and is called cialis price as Jataragni. and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting for their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
