keep going on

there are days the only thing I can do is say – ‘keep going’. It is good to know I am not alone . Enjoy…

Heartbreak and Hope

 

Heartbreak and hope are not mutually exclusive.
We can be angry and sad and filled with longing for something we cannot have,
and simultaneously we can be grateful for what we’ve got — aware,
for reasons we’d never choose, of what really matters and what doesn’t.

Autumn Light

Autumn light is the loveliest light there is. Soft, forgiving, it makes all the world an illuminated dream. Dust motes catch fire, and bright specks drift down from the trees and lift up from the stirred soil, floating over lawns and woodland paths and ordinary roofs and parking lots. It’s an unchoreographed aerial dance, a celebration of what happens when light marries earth and sky. Autumn light always makes me think of fiery motes of chalk dust drifting in the expectant hush of an elementary school classroom during story time, just before the bell rings and sets the children free.


Quote: Margaret Renkl, from “Our Days Have Always Been Running Out.” I greet autumn with a stillness I never felt when I was younger and in such a hurry. (NY Times, Sept 20, 2020)

Thank you, David Kanigan

made of earth and stars

Be humble for you are made of Earth. Be noble for you are made of stars.

 

These are words simple and yet speak to the core of one’s existence.

This is a time when so much has been stripped away. In the clear morning air I sense a connection to some thing greater than life’s hours filled with longing and distraction. 

May you find such a connection. May it renew and encourage you.
