life just is. you have to flow with it. give yourself to the moment. let it happen~J.Brown

*

Serenity is neither
 frivolity, nor 
complacency, it is the
 highest knowledge 
and love, it is the
 affirmation of all 
reality being awake
at the edge of all
deeps and abysses
Serenity is the secret
of beauty and the real
 substance of all art
