So grateful for the beauty and wisdom you shared. Rest in peace, Mary Oliver.
It doesn’t have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few
small stones; just
pay attention, then patch
a few words together and don’t try
to make them elaborate, this isn’t
a contest but the doorway
into thanks, and a silence in which
another voice may speak.”
Quote: Mary Oliver, Thirst

Behind your image, below your words,
above your thoughts,
the silence of another world waits.

We are on the edge of Holy Week – a week in the Christian tradition filled with many doorways and transitions. If this is a journey you take each year, notice all of the doors of this coming week. Consider the choices made each day, each hour — which thresholds would be entered by Jesus and all the people surrounding him.
Doorways and thresholds- facing risk and grace.
Door of the day… (Asturias, Spain)
It is Spring. All around I watch people in their yards and gardens – tending and planting.
From one gardener I heard “gardening is a time when one is quiet.”
As if a sacred act – time with earth,
a reminder of our connection with creation.
May there be a moment when we can take in the beauty of this season
when creation awakens and calls us to do the same.
