“Let us dedicate ourselves to what the Greeks wrote so many years ago; to take the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world.” ~ Robert Kennedy
Good morning, dear friends. As I write this, it is snowing and we have about two inches on the ground. But, it is March and although I am ready to see spring in all her glory, there is such a peacefulness to the beauty of snow. Its tranquility seems to make the world stop and breathe. if only for a moment. To be calm. Therefore, this post is about the gentle side of life. Personally, I think it would benefit all of us if we could find what makes our own worlds more gentle. It is my hope that such things will take root and let us begin to be a better, and certainly more loving world.

Nature is the place that always manages to lift my spirits. There never fails to be something to entertain me ~ squirrels doing their acrobatics, birds practicing their songs, or bunnies playing chase. Nature is gentle and beautiful, it never fails me.
I love to watch Mr. Cardinal feed his lovely wife. They mate for life and it is a pure joy to watch a pair enjoy themselves.
