“Where in this wide world can man find nobility without pride,
Friendship without envy,
Or beauty without vanity?
Here, where grace is served with muscle
And strength by gentleness confined
He serves without servility; he has fought without enmity.
There is nothing so powerful, nothing less violent.
There is nothing so quick, nothing more patient.”

you have been sick and tired by mostly just sick old house with warm yellow passing light that will soak into someone else sweet wet strawberries healthy green blades restoring smooth air come to a brutal halt
everything you have done in your life thus far has brought you here in this complicated landscape lined with pain hot sand you cannot sink deeper into full of palm trees and clear honest oceans strong blue skies that cry every now and again people with no real schedule or worry time feels absent this islands ambiance altered as a place so beautiful can grow so vile though you are thankful for your truth after all thankful for this place
