grace abides

In every walk with nature

one receives far more

than one seeks.

~John Muir

the finer line between misty-eyed and wide-eyed….

inquiry for today~ may you walk home in delight…..


When our eyes are graced with wonder, the world reveals its wonders to us. There are people who see only dullness in the world and that is because their eyes have already been dulled. So much depends on how we look at things. The quality of our looking determines what we come to see. Too often we squander the invitations extended to us because our looking has become repetitive and blind. The mystery and beauty is all around us but we never manage to see it. When the imagination awakens, the inner world illuminates. We begin to glimpse things that no-one speaks about, that the outer world seems to ignore.

~John O’Donohue
