A handful of priceless treasures I found last week. From top to bottom. (1) Salome, a one-act play written (originally in French)by Oscar Wilde in 1891 (2) The Twilight Trail, Indian Legends in Verse by Edith Thurston Keyes (3) Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte (4) Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman
“Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, reexamine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body...The poet shall not spend his time in unneeded work. He shall know that the ground is always ready plowed and manured...others may not know it but he shall. He shall go directly to the creation. His trust shall master the trust of everything he touches...and shall master all attachment.” - Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass #poetslife #poetsociety #higherpurpose #souljourney #consciousness #pricelesstreasures #worksofart #divinetiming #synchronicity #foodforthesoul #magicalmoments #waltwhitman #oldbooks #readrealbooks #wisewords #inspiration #create #spreadlove #pricelesssurprise #timeless #hiddentreasures #leavesofgrass #janeeyre #oscarwilde #nativeamerican #legends #wordstoliveby #wordsforthesoul #storytellers #greatreads
My dad found a can of rocks in my Pa’s shed this past week. My mom and I are currently ooo-ing and aw-ing over my Pa’s hidden collection. There’s so much beautiful jade!!✨
My latest project from beginning to end. Got this old steamer trunk for under$40. Bright it home and shined it up. #steamertrunk #hiddentreasures
