Small Things









If you trust in Nature, in what is simple in Nature, in the small Things that hardly anyone sees and that can so suddenly become huge, immeasurable; if you have this love for what is humble and try very simply, as someone who serves, to win the confidence of what seems poor: then everything will become easier for you, more coherent and somehow more reconciling, not in your conscious mind perhaps, which stays behind, astonished, but in your innermost awareness, awakeness, and knowledge.

–Letters To A Young Poet, by Ranier Maria Rilke

What nice little things...whatever those little white bean things and marshmallow looking things are look like something good to eat. Hopefully it's not just because I'm hungry.
