I let my bare feet feel the ground, I sit under the tree and lean against its roughness. I sit with the tree and try to just be.
More often than not, things fall back into place.
It the photo is one of those trees. I ''found'' this one in Sri Lanka and it taught me that when you choose to grow in unconventional ways, the results can be magical!
This Monday I wanted to share with you a poem by Wendell Berry, an inspiring contemporary American poet and environmentalist.
by Wendell Berry
When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
