Kiva Loans

If you don't know about Kiva check out the link here. It is an opportunity to sponsor independent small business that are in need of finacial support to purchase materials, products, etc to grow their business.

You can choose the person you would like to sponsor and then send $25 dollars to sponsor them. They will gradually pay you back and then you can choose someone else to send the $25 to.

The career of flowers

"The career of flowers differs from ours only in inaudibleness.
I feel more reverence as I grow for these mute creatures whose
suspense or transport may surpass my own."

Emily Dickinson to her cousins
Louise and Frances Norcross,
ca. April 1873

Ah, to be able to think and speak such lovely thoughts.
This quote is from a truely beautiful book that I have just
discovered. "The Paper Garden" by Molly Peacock. In it she
writes about an artist who begins her life's work at 72.
see = A book for any
lover of arts or botony.
