light as hope

Go back and take care of yourself.

Your body needs you.

Your feelings need you.

Your perceptions need you.

Your suffering needs you to acknowledge it.

Go home and be there for all of these things.

~Thich Nhat Hanh

to sense the beating of my own heart….

inquiry for today~ this is a wild and connected moment……

forever true

What can I say that I have not said before?

So I’ll say it again.

The leaf has a song in it.

Stone is the face of patience.

Inside the river there is an unfinishable story

and you are somewhere in it

and it will never end until all ends.

Take your busy heart to the art museum and the

chamber of commerce

but take it also to the forest.

The song you heard singing in the leaf when you

were a child

is singing still.

I am of years lived, so far, seventy-four,

and the leaf is singing still.

~Mary Oliver
