fulfilled in all its beauty

House on the west coast of Bali, built of reclaimed materials...aka "Paradise":

Full story and all photos at Livingetc.com.

Look around you at the gifts of God, the clear sky, the pure air,
the tender grass, the birds; 
nature is beautiful and sinless, and we, only we,
are godless and foolish, and we don't understand that life is a paradise,
for we have only to understand that 
and it will at once be fulfilled in all its beauty, 
we shall embrace each other and weep.
~ Fyodor Dostoevsky

Happy Earth Day!

Beautiful.......unlike some, I revel in the thought that something that is now "mine", once belonged to another. If only those objects could whisper what they know at a time when I was still enough to hear. Shhhhh..............
