A Yearning To Give My All

Mary Webb on Nature…

Every time I meet a tree, if I am truly awake, I stand in awe before it. I listen to its voice, a silent sermon moving me to my depths, touching my heart, and stirring within my soul a yearning to give my all.

Nature’s music is never over; her silences are pauses, not conclusions.

The love of nature is a passion for those in whom it once lodges. It can never be quenched. It cannot change. It is a furious, burning, physical greed, as well as a state of mystical exaltation. It will have its own.

No accident of environment or circumstance need cut us off from nature. … It does not matter how shut in we are. Opportunity for wide experience is of small account in this as in other things; it is depth that brings understanding and life.

Green is the fresh emblem of well -founded hopes. In blue the spirit can wander, but in green it can rest.

~ Mary Webb

  1. Of course, Green is the colour of the Heart Chakra. Don’t need to say much more than that. Love to all.

  2. The flower in the photo at top instantly made me think of common chickweed, a European plant that’s naturalized where I live. But the petals of the pictured flower are less deeply lobed than any chickweed blossoms I’ve seen. Is it greater stitchwort (Stellaria holostea), perhaps? It’s beautiful. Someday I must visit the British Isles, to say hello to all the flowers whose names I do not yet know.
