Love makes you see a place differently

Love makes you see a place differently, just as you hold differently an object that belongs to someone you love. If you know one landscape well, you will look at all other landscapes differently. And if you learn to love one place, sometimes you can also learn to love another."

I'd like to

Happy as you are

You can either hold yourself up to the unrealistic standards of others, or ignore them and concentrate on being happy with yourself as you are.

Autumn too long

"a wind has blown the rain away
the sky away and all the leaves away,
and the trees stand. I think i too have known
autumn too long."
