I may have posted this photo once before, but it's such a wonderful graceful image, full of light for me, and after the last post, I felt I needed some levity here. A friend just called to tell me she just had the feeling that I needed to be with her right now. I am so grateful for angels in the world. It is a beautiful, cool, bright, sunny day here...

It knocked the wind right out of me.
A mile through the woods,
and I still couldn’t catch my breath.
If I’d eaten breakfast,
I would have been puking, too.
A couple more good hills and I gathered myself,
though perhaps gathered is not the right word.
A couple more good hills,
and I emerged from my gut,
into my awareness, grounding a bit.
The grace of the trees,
the humility of stone,
the presence of the insects,
the constancy of water,
the knowing of the sky,
the wisdom of the sun -
- all these kept me
from coming undone.
We are all but still one,
one, but still all.
Perhaps when I lose you,
I somehow gain me.

Here is a taste...

Went to visit a friend in Athens yesterday, and we stayed at another friend's house a bit outside of town. It's a wonderful 200 year old house, as you can see, and a very peaceful, wonderful place to rest awhile. Thank you Sally!

I have been going to the river for years. It is where I re-find my center, my wholeness in the center of the world - the tiny dot that I...
Lately I have been clearing my place a bit, passing some things on and liberating some rocks back to the outdoors. It's been a slow pr...
