Today I would like to share
something nice and simple with you

Instructions
for living a life:

Pay attention
Be astonished
Tell about it

The miracle is
that the brilliance,
of the miraculous
can live
in the blandness
of the mundane.

The greater miracle
is that we
have enough brilliance,
in our
blandness,
to see it

The world turns softly

Not to spill its lakes and rivers,
The water is held in its arms
And the sky is held in the water.
What is water,
That pours silver,
And can hold the sky?
(Hilda Conkling)

This will be a week full of water whispers,
see you tomorrow!
With Love Lies


The magic 
on this planet,
it is contained 
in water.

Once I spoke the language of the flowers

Once I understood each word the caterpillar said

Once I smiled in secret at the gossip of the starlings

And shared a conversation with the housefly in my bed.

Once I heard and answered all the questions of the crickets
And joined the crying of each falling dying flake of snow
Once I spoke the language of the flowers
How did it go?
How did it go?

Smell the soil, get out there and ask the birds
Still your mind just for a while, open up your loving heart
Gently let nature's stories give you a spark
And overflow your thirsty soul.
(free after Shel Silverstein)


Have a magical week!
With Love Lies

I'm sure one day,
we all find the place,
where our dreams
and reality collide.
