The Peace of Wild Things

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 for their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

-Wendell Berry


do a little dance...

faint northern lights in Ely
love how they dance across the sky
amazing and memorable


mint chocolate chip

the absolute most memorable bite of food I have ever eaten...ever.
It tasted like a mint leaf, except for the texture... absolutely amazing.
so fresh. Merci!

lowcountry love

back in the lowcountry
with the best of friends
this place
these people


big sur

awe and silence
rain showers, sun showers, monsoons, and mud slides
long drives, beach combing, whale watching, walking among the coast and the redwoods
relaxing, reading and yoga
just me, just perfect
