Autumn Lake ~ Day 33

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
IMG_8207
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
IMG_8849
Take kindly the council of years,
IMG_7501
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
IMG_6323
You are child of the universe,
IMG_9804
no less than the trees and the stars;
IMG_9797
you have a right to be here.
IMG_2451
And whether or not it is clear to you,
IMG_7997
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
IMG_8332
whatever your labors and aspirations,
IMG_2734
in the noisy confusion of life
IMG_7774
keep peace with your soul.
IMG_8466
With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams
IMG_2577
it is still a beautiful world.
