I think we who are sober can clearly see that fear comes and goes. Hope comes and goes.

They flit in and out of my head unbidden and unfettered.

May all who are suffering today also find peace today in something. Recognize it when it comes.

This too shall pass.

HP, I am so glad you are back and you and Bim lifted my spirits today.

I have always believed in "strangely wrapped gifts" and Tatsy finding her peace again with the planes no longer flying over is one of them.

HP, Ned was very special to each one of us. It is a tribute to the great love they gave us, unconditional and always when we needed it, that we miss our furkids so much. Ned was blessed to have adopted you.

Bim, Homer and Ned and Toby and Jack and Jackpot...all were so very much loved by we spirit people. And just so you know, Toby is the only cat in that gang but he rules! He always did, I think he thought he was a dog.

Yup, I sure missed this thread and am so glad it revived itself.

I'm running late tonight - thought I could just pop in & have a quick look. But no - there were too many wonderful thoughts to treasure. Will be back tomorrow to read & absorb them again.

God bless the memory of dear Ned the honeypiglet. Can't believe it's been 2 yrs.

Hugs for you all. Since this is the only kind of hug we can give right now.

I like that today, HP, simple but something I should ask more often.

The picture is thought provoking and wonderful.

Hugs back Least, and to everyone.

Oh, that's perfect HP. I sometimes wonder what my purpose is. Surely, I must have one.

Yes - hugs all around - we will make it out of this.

Hev, I don't know if it is your purpose, but I am grateful for the kindness, humour, compassion and love of the outdoors and God's creatures that you show every day. I cannot imagine a day without our Hev.

Bowl

for my mother

From the mud in her hands,
the bowl was born.
Opening like a flower
in an arch of petals,
then becoming a vessel
both empty and full.

Later, in the kiln
it was ravaged by fire,
its surface etched and vitrified,
searing the glaze into glass
as its body turned
to stone.

It is at the edge of damage
that beauty is honed.
And in Japan,
the potter tells me,
when a tea bowl
cracks in the fire,
that crack is filled
with gold.


~ Heather Swan

To go in the dark with a light is to know the light.
To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight,
and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings,
and is traveled by dark feet and dark wings.


~ Wendell Berry

When the wind blows, that is my medicine.
When it rains, that is my medicine.
When it hails, that is my medicine.
When it becomes clear after the storm, that is my medicine.

Couldn't pick just one photo, so today is a two-fer:
