I love this Hermann Hesse quote. I'm sad that I gave away his book. L/F Wandering Read My rating: [ 5 of 5 stars ] Wandering by Hermann Hesse 4.03 ยท Hesse wrote to Romain Rolland: "I have had to bear a very heavy burden in my personal life in recent years. Now I am about to go to Ticino once again, to live for a while as a hermit in nature and in my work." In 1920, after settling in the Ticino mountain village of Montagnola, he published Wandering, a love letter to this magic-garden world that can be read as a meditation on his attempt to begin a new life. His pure prose, his heartfelt lyricism, and his love for the old earth, for its blessings that renew themselves, all sing in this serene book. The first German edition of Wandering included facsimiles of fourteen watercolor landscapes. Hesse's painting had blossomed in the southern countryside and he even toyed with the idea "that I might still succeed in escaping literature entirely and making a living at the more appealing trade of painter." Unfortunately, his original pictures for Wandering have disappeared; this edition reproduces in black-and-white the full-color reproductions of the 1920 edition. (less)

VIVA Anderson replied:

Louis!! Oh my,oh my....I am amazed and pleased the quote struck a chord; and more so, b/c your wonderful response affirms this quote, and who we are, too !! I'm honoured by your sharing your soul to me and all who will 'agree' !! Thank you so much for your thoughts. My condolences that you gave the book away: somehow I know it still 'whispers' to you! I treasure your time here, Lou, and appreciate your thoughts. Thank You, VIVA

I listen, now, to my blood whisperings...........

DANNY LOWE

DANNY LOWE

An epitaph to live by perhaps, but I like, too, the part of the quote that precedes it: "I do not consider myself less ignorant than most people. I have been and still am a seeker, but I have ceased to question stars and books; I have begun to listen to the teachings my blood whispers to me.". I love quotes and poetry of men and women far wiser than I.

VIVA Anderson replied:

Me, too, Danny. also love you additional thoughts. The whispers are so important too...for me, they are proof positive that my soul understands the otherwise silent truth. Do, please visit my collection...imbibe, no need to speak to me, and I will be honoured if you do. To be a seeker, is to know, and be brave . Cheers, Danny, happy 2020....VIVA

Broken Soldier

Broken Soldier

This is really moving. Even to me. I mean I figure I only really have 2 things going for me in life: 1) I'm too shallow to fall in love with an ugly woman; and 2) I'm too vain to get fat (injuries took care of that one.)

VIVA Anderson replied:

Dear Broken...I am thrilled this moved 'even' you, Sir.... it is an undeniable truism, that strikes the right chord. 1)me too,the reverse,lol;2)stress took care of that one, for me.....I know your Art, visit often, and to me, you are 'moveable'..in your depths of knowing, from your most challenging life now....can't fool me. Thank you for sharing,knowing/trusting, I'd understand.......VIVA
