A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine. I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now. When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image, and the breath of that universal love which bears and sustains us, as it floats around us in an eternity of blist.

[The most recent one is at the bottom.] While my income-earning activity amounts to little more than sitting at a laptop searching for translation projects online, receiving them, doing them and sending them back, I can agree that, in this day and age, it is highly recommended for business owners to have a blog or […]

[The most recent one is at the bottom.] Why do people say “big deal” when what they really mean is “no big deal”? 3rd January 2012 I think I get it now. There’s a certain work habit I keep showing that drives me crazy. When I’m doing a translation project: it’s my tendency to look […]
