The most peaceful parts of my Sabbath

And he said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man... Mark 2:27

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
― Albert Einstein

Eggs are glorious things. As for messangers with little notes, even better.

"Oblique oddity, an egg is the most beautiful of all
beautiful forms, a box without corners
in which anything
can be contained, anything except Time, that old jeweler who laughed
when he set me ticking."
- excerpt from Elizabeth Spires's poem Fabergé's Egg

"For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils."
-William Wordsworth, "Daffodils
