are we listening?

Perhaps last night’s journaling sensed what would come to life at 2am as I watched the night sky from the River House deck.

A shooting, falling star is like “a bright, fragile ‘I am'” … “As our metal eyes wake / to absolute night, / where whispers fly / from the beginning of time, / we cup our ears to the heavens.” ~ We Are Listening by Diane Ackerman

twilight waiting

Still working my way through sharing the pages created during Advent, although my heart this morning is holding vigil for the Holy Innocents.

The second photo is our labyrinth before re-blazing it last night. There is no filter on the photo, just nature’s twilight.


Holy hovers here

Drop Thy still dews of quietness / Till all our strivings cease / Take from our souls the strain and stress / And let our ordered lives confess / The beauty of Thy peace. ~John Greenleaf Whittier


When my eyes chase the noise, often I miss what was to be right in front of me. “Wait,” says the Lord, “be in the I AM.”
