A good woman

When she loves you, she loves you to pieces.


Actionless activity

The mere presence of a single flower—in my case, immediately, a single iris in a squat, narrow-necked vase—changes an entire room. How does one flower do this? By not doing anything.

The wisdom of field flowers

The greater the effort, the more self-serving the result. Love is an action, not an effort. We are told to take our instruction in how not to make an effort from field flowers.


Noblesse oblige

You are a prince. Act like one.


Slow love

Be patient. It’s a slow process, that of expunging old habits and incubating new ones. The end is in the means. Slow is true. Slow is sure.
