#FridayFantasy . . . Turquoise, the magical birthstone of December






If cold December gave you birth—
The month of snow, and ice, and mirth—
Place on your hand a turquoise blue,
Success will bless whate’er you do.

~Author unknown, “A Gem for Every Month,” c.1883

#FridayFantasy . . . . The swan has come to alight





” On the bank of a pool
in the moor
The swan has come
to alight
But he does not dip
his beak to drink,
He is eager
…. to fly away. “

– Baba Sheikh Farid

#FridayFantasy . . . Just small, gentle hums of beauty…





” I don’t ever crave extraordinary moments anymore.
Just small, gentle hums of beauty streaming from below, above,
and beyond simply from paying attention. Sound. Light. Shadow.
Art. Warmth. The night. The morning. Dreams that are not far away
but exist right here – already in my days, hands, and heart.”

#FridayFantasy . . . I keep holding up the mirror of the sun



“I keep
holding up
the mirror of the sun,
so you can see the stunning
reflections of everything
you’re becoming.”

#FridayFantasy . . . Just touching that old tree was truly moving to me




“Just touching that old tree was truly moving to me
because when you touch these trees, 
you have such a sense of the passage of time,
of history. It’s like you’re touching the essence, 
the very substance of life.”

#FridayFantasy . . . When the sweet ache of being alive is awakened,…



When the sweet ache of being alive,
lodged between who you are
and who you will be,
is awakened,
befriend this moment.
It will guide you.
Its sweetness is what holds you.
Its ache is what moves you on.

~Mark Nepo
