Word of the Day: Meadow

mead·ow /ˈmedō/, noun: land that is covered or mostly covered with grass and often wild flowers

In a meadow full of flowers, you cannot walk through and breathe those smells and see all those colors and remain angry. We have to support the beauty, the poetry, of life.” Jonas Mekas, 1922 –

It is the mind which creates the world around us, and even though we stand side by side in the same meadow, my eyes will never see what is beheld by yours, my heart will never stir to the emotions with which yours is touched.” George Gissing, 1857 – 1903
