All action begins in rest.

-Lao Tzu

May you find time to breathe deeply.

To put up you feet.

To listen to birdsong, or music or silence.

Notice the slant of the sunlight.

Sink into the lovely month of November.

Pause to see what is revealed to you in the quiet.

and still we plod on...


last night's sunset, from our place
this morning'a sunrise, from the other side of the ridge

well friends,
we made it to the other side of the elections (kind of).

such relief, celebration and hope.
and yet, concern and dismay thanks to you know who.

still it seems,
one foot in front of the other.
some distractions for you...

november 1, 2020


Start acting like you are a member of a 

compassionate majority up against a

desperate,  fearful, and shrinking minority.

Because you are.

-Ethan Nichtern

wherever we end up in the next week or so,
the sun will still come up, 
and we will put one foot in front of the other,
because really, really, really,
the words above are true.

hang in there friends.

triptych #49


we took a covid safe day trip to the coast of maine

to reclaim our mental health.

and eat lobstah rolls for lunch.

it was a glorious day.

i am quite fed up with "new and improved" blogger

and am working on finding an alternative platform.

(are you still holding on to hope, friends?)

Three things cannot be long hidden:

the sun,

the moon,

and the truth.
