Quote of the Weekend

“. . . I need fire and earth and wind and waves as much as I need food. I’d go mad living in this wired-up, bricked-up, fenced-in concrete street if I didn’t dose myself with fire and weather and earth and sea. My soul would get pale and thin. I don’t want a pale, thin soul.” – The Hawk and the Dove by Penelope Wilcock

(This line has stuck with me for weeks and weeks. It so perfectly describes why I love water, dirt, grass, trees, and why I always have candles lit in my house. I love the elements. I love how windy Texas is. I love storms and rain. I love snow and leaves. I don’t want a pale, thin soul.)
