The Wisdom of Life hides between the notes of the lyre,

where the Muses dance and sing.

Harmony, Beauty, Love, Fraternity.

The forest fills with life.

Inspired by the Roman philosopher Plotinus:

“..the stars live a blessed life … by force of their souls’ tendency to become one, and by the light they cast from themselves upon the entire heavens, they are like the strings of a lyre which, being struck in tune, sing a melody in some natural scale…”

Plotinus, Aneads. 4th Anead, 4th tracture, section 8
