Every Moment

Every moment and every event of every man's life on earth plants something in his soul.

(Thomas Merton)

The Days Run Away Like Wild Horses Over the Hills 


It's Summer

Summer afternoon- summer afternoon. The two most beautiful words in the English language.

(Henry James)



I made a new friend via my latest interest in wearable art. I had been enjoying her work and her words via her own blog and we finally connected via email. We have so very much in common.
She gave me a wonderful gift.

may i live this day.
compassionate of heart,
clear in word,
gracious in awareness,
courageous in thought,
generous in love. 


A poem by John O'Donohue. I had never read it before she shared it with me. What a lovely gift. One I can hold onto, one I can turn to when I need the positive thought and beautiful words.

Words are some of the greatest gifts we can give each other and they hold so very much power.

I have been writing quite a bit of haiku over at the laughing pileated  . Tonight I am wishing I could speak fox speak, for my little fox kit friend is also sharing his/her thoughts quote loudly this evening. He has his own language, and even though I do not understand the exact meaning of the sounds, they tug at my heart. I don't know how to answer him, only to send out a silent wish for his well being and saftey.

Be brave little fox. I may not understand you, but I am listening with my heart. I may not comprehend your yelps and your squeaks but I find the world a much more beautiful place with you here.

Everything is connected. Everything.
