What calls you back to a place?

It happens frequently at the Grunewald Guild that we have folks stop by who once were part of the Guild in some way. Often they have friends or family along who look at the place with puzzled curiosity. I’ve been wondering… what is it that calls people back? It seems bigger than nostalgia.

That’s what I was pondering and journaling when I realized that the page was an unusually close reflection of the breakfast table at which I was sitting, a lovely table set for Jim and me by a dear friend.

pondering agápē and agāp(e); the first a noun meaning selfless love, the second an adjective meaning ‘with mouth wide open as in wonder’

“Divine potentiality–beautiful, fathomless, endlessly creative–projects itself into form in order to realize fully the depths of divine love… The act of loving brings hidden potential to full expression, and the more intimate and costly the self-giving, the more precious the quality of love revealed.” ~Cynthia Bourgeault, The Wisdom Jesus
