Born: 427 BC, Athens, Greece

a philosopher in Classical Greece, was also a mathematician, student of Socrates, writer of philosophical dialogues. Founder of the Academy in Athens, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world. Along with his mentor, Socrates, and his student, Aristotle, Plato helped to lay the foundations of Western philosophy and science.

Plato's dialogues have been used to teach a range of subjects, including philosophy, logic, ethics, rhetoric, religion and mathematics.

Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.

All the gold which is under or upon the earth is not enough to give in exchange for virtue.

Jacek Yerka

Let parents bequeath to their children not riches, but the spirit of reverence.

Democracy... is a charming form of government, full of variety and disorder; and dispensing a sort of equality to equals and unequals alike.

No man should bring children into the world who is unwilling to persevere to the end in their nature and education.

Tuesday; Morning;

A new day is approaching...

Photo taken without flash;

It is  Tuesday, 6:13 AM. Through the window I can just make out the silhouettes of the nearest Paperbark tree. It looks very beautiful and very still. With my camera I try  and want to keep this moment, as daylight quickly seeps in from all directions.
   Blustering cackles of the Kookaburras and  the plain  cawing of some crows  keep pace with the approaching light.


Good Morning, have a nice day.

Monday; fantasy;

My granddaughter loves fantasy, another little note I found in one of my cookbooks.

The faculty or activity of imagining things that are impossible or improbable.

Fantasy is a genre of fiction that commonly uses magic and other supernatural phenomena as a primary plot.
Many works within the genre take place in imaginary worlds where magic and magical creatures are common. 
In popular culture, the fantasy genre is predominantly of the medievalist form, especially since the worldwide success of The Lord of the Rings and related books by J. R. R. Tolkien.
 In its broadest sense, however, fantasy comprises works by many writers, artists, film makers, and musicians, from ancient myths and legends to many recent works embraced by a wide audience today.

My garden and its little fantasy ;  every garden needs a little bit of fantasy;

 Fantasy has the inclusion of fantastic elements in a setting,  inspiration from mythology and folklore.  The fantastical element may be hidden, or  may leak into the real world setting. It may draw the characters into a world with such elements, or it may occur entirely in a fantasy world setting. Fantasy follows rules of its own,  allowing magic and other fantastic devices to be used.
