A Smile and A Gentleness


“One of the most famous wallpaper images is undoubtedly the default Windows XP image showing a blissfully relaxing vista of green rolling hills and a bluer than blue sky.

Have you ever stopped to wonder where the image was taken, or who took it? In fact, the image is so crisp you might have assumed it wasn’t real at all.

The man behind the camera is American photographer Charles O’Rear. Don’t let his name fool you into thinking that the photo was in fact taken in Ireland. Bliss, as it turns out, is in California. In Sonoma County to be exact.”

“A tremendously moving and beautiful portrait of a special individual.”
“Incredibly loving and powerful person. Here we see what HERO really means.”



I am so small
I can barely be seen.
How can this great love
be inside me?
Look at your eyes.
They are small,
but they see enormous things.

~ Rumi



Love is from the infinite,
and will remain until eternity.
The seeker of love escapes
the chains of birth and death.
Tomorrow, when resurrection comes,
The heart that is not in love
will fail the test.

~ Rumi



A Smile and A Gentleness


There is a smile and a gentleness inside.
When I learned the name and address of that,
I went to where you sell perfume.

I begged you not to trouble me so with longing.
Come out and play!
Flirt more naturally.

Teach me how to kiss.
On the ground a spread blanket,
flame that’s caught and burning well,
cumin seeds browning,
I am inside all of this with my soul.

~ Rumi
