day 50 ~ what hermits realize

"But I'll tell you what hermits realize: 
If you go off into a far, far forest and get very quiet, 
you'll come to understand that you're connected with everything." 
~ Alan Watts

  1. From a self proclaimed hermit, I LOVE this image and the quote you chose. Just beautiful, really captivating and quiet. Plus the symbolism of the web. Awesome, Misha.

  2. I love this and really needed to be reminded of our connections. Coincidentally, my post today is titled "Isolation." <3

  3. I have found this to be quiet true as I lean toward hermitizing (word?) of late. Hi Mish ♥

  4. A wonderful image and quote. It is interesting that within the idea and ideal of hermit status, there also exists an impetus of the illusory disconnect that impels the hermit to want to be hermitous (sue me, I made up a word...:) ) , only to have this fundamental truth of connectivity throughout.

    For now, I'm enjoying my illusions.


  5. Meg, I am the same self proclaimed, in waves. :)

    Amy, thank you for illustrating the quote! <3

    hi Paige ~:) ~xo

    Rick, you make me smile. I love your made up words. Hermitous sounds like a condition to be remedied with green tea and migrating monarchs. ~xo8
