The Earth laughs in flowers

Thats one of my favourite quotes, by Ralph Waldo Emerson, a 19th century American essayist. A philosopher, he championed ideas such as individuality and freedom, and “the ability for humankind to realise almost anything”.

He rejected the notion of God as a separate entity, instead believing in the moral worth of the individual. Given the current atrocities happening in Gaza, and all the wars as a result of religion, I kinda like the idea of rejecting God.

Anyway! I digress! This blog post was basically just to show off some photos of nature – beautiful flowers in bloom. Beauty like this is natural, no religion needed.

Just some colour to counteract the grey days.
