In its deep cup-grassy, cool-
Sleeps the little roadside pool;
Sleeps the butterfly on the weed,
Sleeps the drifted thistle-seed.
Like a great and blazing gem,
Basks the beetle on the stem.
Up and down the shining rays
Dancing midges weave their maze.
-Charlies G.D. Roberts (1860-1943

ThoughtCo: Pomona, Goddess of Apples
Pomona was a Roman goddess who was the keeper of orchards and fruit trees. Unlike many other agricultural deities, Pomona is not associated with the harvest itself, but with the flourishing of fruit trees.

Inner Journey: REAWAKEN YOUR CURIOSITY
“What a distressing contrast there is between the radiant intelligence of the child and the feeble mentality of the average adult.”
— Sigmund Freud
Why is this so?
Young children possess what Zen calls ‘beginner’s mind.’ They are awed and fascinated with the wonder of the world, open to discovering and experiencing new things. Anything is possible. Life is a great adventure.
For almost all of us, the systems that ‘educate’ us to be adults stifle our natural joy and curiosity. We lose touch with our innate appreciation of life. We forget how to dream.
The blessing is that with attention, patience and love, we can reawaken our sense of wonder. We can again dance with life.
“The mind WILL be free, or it will be dead.”
— Grace Llewellyn

“The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it intuition or what you will, and the solution comes to you and you don’t know how or why.”
-Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
Albert Einstein knew that there was a purpose for time spent in quiet. In silence we have access to all the wisdom of the universe. We don’t have to reach for it, the wisdom comes to us when we are open to it, and allow it space to come in. We can soak it up, marinate in it! And then, lo and behold, the wisdom is there for us when we need it.
Daily Tarot: Temperance
Instinct and impulsive action will cause more trouble than they can solve today, so spend more time reasoning things out and being careful about what you say and do. Asking questions is a good idea. It will get you information you need, and show how thorough, bright, and capable you are. It might take a bit longer, but it will save time and effort in the end.
