writerly wisdom # 21

"I wonder if anyone else has an ear so tuned and sharpened as I have, to detect the music, not of the spheres, but of earth, subtleties of major and minor chord that the wind strikes upon the tree branches. Have you ever heard the earth breathe?"
~Kate Chopin  (1850-1904)  American novelist and short story writer


  1. What a beautiful quote! I love to listen to the earth, wind, trees, and all aspects of nature. Such a unique tune if you listen closely and enjoy the moment. Thanks so much for sharing this quote. :)

  2. Thanks, Jess. I loved this one when I read it too. Makes you stop and focus on the larger picture.
