"Home." As life treads on, home’s no longer a specific town or house or room 
where we reside. It’s instead a series of moments we gather, 
like snapshots on a string of times spent with the people we love most. 
Time always stands stillest in those subtle moments that seem to echo loudest 
in this swiftly turning world.
If you could collect one crucial thing in this life, let it be the subtle moments, 
the snapshots, and collection of still points that make up “home”, 
and hold them close in spaces that remain open whenever you may need to return. 
When it’s time to dive into them, it’s simply time.

Victoria Erickson

'I love those moments when you just think, and you realize how happy you actually are. 
At that one moment in time, you can’t think of anything that brings you down. 
You put everything negative aside and you just smile. 
Random bursts of happiness are fantastic.'

christmas is just around the corner

Everything you are looking at
You have already seen once
Through the eyes of love.
In this second vision,
Do not judge.
For you do not know
what needs your help here.
And you do not know
what has come to serve you.
Assume there is wisdom in every devastation,
And awakening power in every wound.
And every feeling you push away
May contain medicine.
Gentleness is the only answer.

Jeff Foster

People travel to wonder at the height of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, 
at the long courses of rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, 
at the circular motion of the stars; 
and they pass by themselves without wondering.

Augustine of Hippo, “Confessions”

I sit before flowers

hoping they will train me in the art
of opening up
that avalanches will teach me to let go

I stand on mountain tops believing
I know
but I am here to learn.
