Heart of Blooming Quince



What a lovely place this world would be if only people would feel affection for everyone else, and all the ugliness of the human heart were to vanish - our envy of those better off than ourselves and our scorn for those worse off. 
~ Sayo Masuda

  WE can change things.
WE can love more.
WE can show more kindness

When I saw it I immediately thought it was shaped like a heart.
Do you see it?

Listen To The Whisper

We listen and breezes from a whole other world begin to whisper.
