“Praying…it doesn’t have to be
the blue iris, it could be weeds in a vacant lot, or a few small stones; just
pay attention, then patch a few words together and don’t try to make them elaborate, this isn’t a contest but the doorway into thanks, and a silence in which another voice may speak.”
Mary Oliver

only to stand
wherever I am

“Let me keep my distance, always, from those
who think they have the answers.
Let me keep company always with those who say
“Look!” and laugh in astonishment,
and bow their heads.”
Mary Oliver

“Listen to me, your body is not a temple. Temples can be destroyed and desecrated. Your body is a forest—thick canopies of maple trees and sweet scented wildflowers sprouting in the underwood. You will grow back, over and over, no matter how badly you are devastated.” Beau Taplin

“Rest and be thankful.” William Wordsworth
Sometimes a good day doesn’t show up like you expect. No sleep in over 24 hours is a small price to pay when your baby is sick. This…the peacefulness of this moment…is a gift.
