Dum vivimus, vivamus

Cuban Royal Palm in my garden;

Life’s fragments 
Like shattered glass
Crystal prisms cut and sting
No more, never more
It will pass

Dum vivimus, vivamus - While we live, let us live
(Epicurean philosophy)

Hora pars vitae;

Dream on dear one 
In the wondrous world  of sleep;
No sound no sigh
Escapes the drowsy deep;
The mists lay low
The night wind  moans; 
The dreamer keeps
His mind on loan;
Till morning light reaps
Heart and soul and dreams.

Hora pars vitae; Every hour is a part of life

Scientia et sapientia;

A great passion for books, to hold, to read, to marvel at the words. It will take you into another world, a world of dreams, knowledge and opportunities. Windows  open to lead the mind  into new experiences. Titania

Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill.

A room without books is like a body without a soul.

Scientia et sapientia; knowledge and wisdom

Natura valde simplex est et sibi consona;

Vineyard in Stanthorpe;

Nature’s relentless twists and turns, 
show its best and its worst. Titania

Natura valde simplex est et sibi consona;

Nature is exceedingly simple and harmonious with itself
