Look up...

"Stars and blossoming cherry trees:

utter permanence and extreme fragility

give an equal sense of eternity".

-Simone Weil

Stunning pictures. And I love this quote - I never thought about it this way, but it's so true.

It's about breathing isn't it- you almost breathe easier when you cast your head back!

Glad you like it too, Polly, a friend sent it to me when we were discussing all the beautiful blossom.I'm going to investigat the book it's taken from- Gravity and Grace.

I adore being reminded of the beauty in the world.
