In order to see birds it is necessary to become a part of the silence.” ― Robert Lynd

I saw a navy blue bird

flying way above the sea

I walked on & I learned later

that this navy blue bird was me

I returned a paler blue bird

and this is the advice they gave me

“you must not try to be too pure

you must fly closer to the sea”

 Sinead O’Connor in “I do not want what I haven’t got”

You thought, as a boy, that a mage is one who can do anything. So I thought once. So did we all. And the truth is at as a man’s real power grows and his knowledge widens, ever the way he can follow grows narrower: until at last he chooses nothing, but does only and wholly what he must do.

– Ursula K. LeGuin

“Well, here at last, dear friends, on the shores of the Sea comes the end of our fellowship in Middle-earth. Go in peace! I will not say: do not weep; for not all tears are an evil.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King
