Planet Earth Ring IV

Of asphodel, that greeny flower,
like a buttercup
upon its branching stem-
save that it’s green and wooden-
I come, my sweet,
to sing to you.
— William Carlos Williams

Planet Earth Necklace II

To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself. When you are born a lotus flower, be a beautiful lotus flower, don’t try to be a magnolia flower. If you crave acceptance and recognition and try to change yourself to fit what other people want you to be, you will suffer all your life. True happiness and true power lie in understanding yourself, accepting yourself, having confidence in yourself.
— Thich Nhat Hanh

Pacific

My mother grew up in California. When she was thirty, she met my father and moved to Mexico City to start a family. Every Summer during childhood, we would return to Newport Beach to visit relatives. I will always remember our sunset strolls on smooth sidewalks, where we gazed in awe at landscaped gardens, embraced by the warm, salty air.

Unreal

The unreal is more powerful than the real...it’s only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles. Wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on. If you can change the way people think. The way they see themselves. The way they see the world. You can change the way people live their lives. That’s the only lasting thing you can create.
— Chuck Palahniuk
