Start close in, don't take the second step or the third, start with the first thing close in, the step you don't want to take. Start with the ground you know, the pale ground beneath your feet, your own way of starting the conversation. Start with your own question, give up on other people's questions, don't let them smother something simple. To find another's voice follow your own voice, wait until that voice becomes a private ear listening to another. Start right now take a small step you can call your own don't follow someone else's heroics, be humble and focused, start close in, don't mistake that other for your own. Start close in, don't take the second step or the third, start with the first thing close in, the step you don't want to take. 🦋 - David Whyte naturephotography#colorsoftheday #instagood #empoweringwomen #womenphotographer #naturephotographer #macrophotography #macronature #igers_seattle #seattleartcommunity #seattle_community #seattle_igers #heart_imprint_vip #poetrycommunity #poetsofinstagram #poetsofig #igcolor #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #writerscorner #writerscommunityofinstagram #poetryofinstagram #poetryofig #instapoetry #poetscommunity #poetryandphotography #moody_nature #fiftyshades_of_nature
Jealousy is a normal human emotion. It's a map. Each of our jealousy maps differs. Each of us will probably be surprised by some of the things we discover on our own. Jealousy is a mask for fear: fear that we aren't able to get what we want; frustration that somebody else seems to be getting what is rightfully ours even if we are too frightened to reach for it. At its root, jealousy is a stingy emotion. It tells us there is room for only one - one poet, one painter, one whatever you dream of being. The truth, revealed by action in the direction of our dreams, is that there is room for all of us. But jealousy produces tunnel vision. It narrows our ability to see things in perspective. The biggest lie that jealousy tells us is that we have no choice but to be jealous. Perversely, jealousy strips us of our will to act when action holds the key to our freedom. . - Julia Cameron (edited) #naturephotography #colorsoftheday #instagood #empoweringwomen #womenphotographer #macrophotography #macronature #igers_seattle #seattleartcommunity #seattle_igers #heart_imprint_vip #poetrycommunity #poetsofinstagram #poetsofig #igcolor #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #writerscorner #writerscommunityofinstagram #poetryofinstagram #poetryofig #instapoetry #poetscommunity #poetryandphotography #moody_nature #fiftyshades_of_nature #mindfulness #theartistsway #empowerment #selfimprovement

🦋 The Circle Nothing is better than selling figs to the figs seller. That's how this is. Making profit is not why we're here, nor pleasure, nor even joy. When someone is a goldsmith, wherever he goes he asks for the goldsmith. Wheat stays wheat right through the threshing. How would the soul feel in the beloved's river? Like fish washed free and clean of fear. You drive us away, but we return like pigeons. Shahabuddin Osmond joins the circle. We will say this poem again so he can play. There is no end to anything round.

🦋 Good Bones Life is short, though I keep this from my children. Life is short, and I’ve shortened mine in a thousand delicious, ill-advised ways, a thousand deliciously ill-advised ways I’ll keep from my children. The world is at least fifty percent terrible, and that’s a conservative estimate, though I keep this from my children. For every bird there is a stone thrown at a bird. For every loved child, a child broken, bagged, sunk in a lake. Life is short and the world is at least half terrible, and for every kind stranger, there is one who would break you, though I keep this from my children. I am trying to sell them the world. Any decent realtor, walking you through a real shithole, chirps on about good bones: This place could be beautiful, right? You could make this place beautiful. - Maggie Smith 🦋 #naturephotography #colorsoftheday #instagood #empoweringwomen #womanphotographer #womenphotographer #femalephotographer #naturephotographer #macrophotography #macronature #igers_seattle #seattleartcommunity #seattle_community #seattle_igers #greenlakeseattle #heart_imprint_vip #poetrycommunity #poetsofinstagram #poetsofig #igcolor #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #writerscorner #writerscommunityofinstagram #poetryofinstagram #poetryofig #instapoetry #poetscommunity #poetryandphotography

🦋 "Feelings? What feelings? Are they in this room with us?" "What did you say? Huh? I didn't quite hear you right." "Mostly I have feelings with my head." "I think one feeling a day is all I can handle." . We can't choose what feelings to neglect. Deny sadness. Deny happiness. 🦋 . #naturephotography #colorsoftheday #instagood #empoweringwomen #womanphotographer #womenphotographer #femalephotographer #naturephotographer #macrophotography #macronature #igers_seattle #seattleartcommunity #seattle_community #seattle_igers #greenlakeseattle #heart_imprint_vip #poetrycommunity #poetsofinstagram #poetsofig #igcolor #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #writerscorner #writerscommunityofinstagram #poetryofinstagram #poetryofig #instapoetry #poetscommunity #poetryandphotography
🦋 Clearing Do not try to save the whole world or do anything grandiose. Instead, create a clearing in the dense forest of your life and wait there patiently, until the song that is your life falls into your own cupped hands and you recognize and greet it. Only then will you know how to give yourself to this world so worth of rescue. - Matha Postlewaite 🦋 #marthapostlewaite #naturephotography #colorsoftheday #instagood #empoweringwomen #womanphotographer #womenphotographer #femalephotographer #naturephotographer #macrophotography #macronature #igers_seattle #seattleartcommunity #seattle_community #seattle_igers #greenlakeseattle #heart_imprint_vip #poetrycommunity #poetsofinstagram #poetsofig #igcolor #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #writerscorner #writerscommunityofinstagram #poetryofinstagram #poetryofig #instapoetry #poetscommunity #poetryandphotography
🦋 When I wonder now only when it will happen, when the young mother will hear the noise like somebody's pressure cooker down the block, going off. She'll go out on the yard, holding her small daughter in her arms, and there, above the end of the street, in the air above the line of the tress, she will see it rising, lifting up over the horizon, the upper rim of the gold ball, large as a giant planet starting to lift up over ours. She will stand there in the yard holding her daughter, looking at it rise and grow and blossom and rise, and the child will open her arms to it, it will look so beautiful. -Sharon Olds #naturephotography #colorsoftheday #instagood #empoweringwomen #womanphotographer #womenphotographer #femalephotographer #naturephotographer #macrophotography #macronature #igers_seattle #seattleartcommunity #seattle_community #seattle_igers #greenlakeseattle #mindfulness #poetrycommunity #poetsofinstagram #poetsofig #poems #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #writerscorner #writerscommunityofinstagram #poetryofinstagram #poetryofig #instapoetry #poetscommunity #poetryandphotography

"Anger is fuel. We feel it and we want to do something. Hit someone, break something, throw a fit, smash a fist into the wall, tell those bastards. But we are nice people, and what we do with our anger is stuff it, deny it, bury it. We do everything but listen to it. Anger is meant to be listen to. Anger is a voice, a shout, a plea, a demand. Anger it meant to be respected. Why? Because anger is a map. Anger shows us what our boundaries are, it shows us where we want to go. It let us see where we've been and lets us know when we haven't liked it. Anger is a sign of health. We are meant to use anger as fuel to take the actions we need to move where our anger points us. It tells us we can't get away with our old life any longer. Anger is the fuel that propels us into our new one. Anger is a friend. Not a nice friend, not a gentle friend. But a very, very loyal friend. It always tells us that it is time to act in our own best interest. Anger is not the action itself. It's action's invitation." - Julia Cameron (edited) . . . . . #shareyourthoughts #sharingthoughts #poetrycommunity #writingcommunity #writerscommunity #storytelling #empowerment #mindfulness #juliacameron #theartistsway #seattlecommunity #seattle_art #seattle #igers_seattle #seattle_igers #photooftheday #instagood #instadaily #agameoftones #colors_of_day #spring #poetryofig #anger #selfcompassion #artistscommunity #becominganartist #seattleartcommunity #macro_vision #macro_captures
