For the night skies opening outwards, star upon star, expanse after expanse, thanks be to you, O God. For the mystery of your presence in and beyond all that can be seen, thanks be to you.
Quote: Celtic Benediction, J. Philip Newell
“Right in the difficult we must have our joys, our happiness, our dreams: there against the depth of this background,
they stand out,
there for the first time we see how beautiful they are.”
~Rainer Maria Rilke
Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about.
I lean toward the day when the phrase “I’ll meet you there” is once again in our civil discourse.
By example- let us make it so.
