Walk to the well. Turn as the earth and the moon turn, circling what they love. Whatever circles comes from the center. –Rumi
May the Sun bring you new energy by day May the Moon softly restore you by night May the Rain wash away your worries May the Breeze blow new strength into your being May you Walk gently through the world and Know its Beauty all the days of your life. –Apache Blessing
“O thou who are trying to learn the marvel of Love through the copybook of reason, I am very much afraid you will never see the point.” –Hafez
How is this even possible? How can one tiny body hold together in the utter contradiction between wings flapping up to 70 times per second yet beak still enough to thread a toothpick-size hole? No wonder her heart is likely beating more than 1200 times a minute! (Yes, “her.” This is a female ruby-throated.) She is gone now. And her spouse and friends. The feeders are in and cleaned, waiting for the first warmth of spring to draw the them back to my front yard. I will join them dancing with the spirit.
Whoever you are, you are human. Wherever you are, you live in the world, which is just waiting for you to notice the holiness in it. –Barbara Brown Taylor
