“No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings.”

William Blake


Sometimes it’s hard to recognize your own wings, to appreciate them, to come to love them. Sometimes you have to lean on someone else’s wings first. But when you recognize and accept your own, that’s when your heart soars.

Nurture peace, cultivate kindness, and carry the calm.

White as Wings of Prayer

“The mists above the morning rills

Rise white as wings of prayer.”

– John Greenleaf Whittier –


Need a bit of solace for your soul? Gently soar on the soft music and prayerlike, birdlike wings of this kinetic sculpture, Diffusion Choir. It’s short, and it’s amazing.

Nourish peace, cultivate loving kindness, and carry the calm.
