happy earth day

her secret is patience.

in the midst of living

My ideas usually come not at my desk writing 
but in the midst of living.

folding the towels

Spirituality doesn't look like sitting down and meditating. 
Spirituality looks like folding the towels in a sweet way 
and talking kindly to the people in the family 
even though you've had a long day.

Boise loves Boston

Right now, collectively in our hearts, we can choose to eradicate harm and violence of any kind... in thoughts, words, and deeds. And, as often as humanly possible, we can choose love over fear and peace over hatred. 

This is the only way to change anything.

at home

by Mary Oliver

Today I'm flying low and I'm
not saying a word.
I'm letting all the voodoos of ambition sleep.

The world goes on as it must,
the bees in the garden rumbling a little,
the fish leaping, the gnats getting eaten.
And so forth.

But I'm taking the day off.
Quiet as a feather.
I hardly move though really I'm traveling
a terrific distance.

Stillness. One of the doors
into the temple.

“I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universe.”
