Alone.


Recently during my morning walk Inoticed something. The herbs and grass grow close together. The shurbs stand slightly wide appart. But the trees, the taller and bigger they are stand wide appart.


They stay alone.


Today I came across these words.


'Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each of you be alone...

Stand together not too near together for the pillars of the temple stand appart.'

-Kahlil Gibran.
P.S. That is another pix of Veli.

I need my space!
you need your space!
he/she/it needs their space!
you need your space!
they need their space!

Because its very important!

Being independent, now that is an experience that many have yet to learn. But although I agree that space is important like wandelust, let us not forget communication.

I like this piece, I hope to read more.
