What Can I Say
What can I say that I have not said before?
So I'll say it again.
The leaf has a song in it.
Stone is the face of patience.
Inside the river there is an unfinishable story
and you are somewhere in it
and it will never end until all ends.
Take your busy heart to the art museum and the
chamber of commerce
but take it also to the forest.
The song you heard singing in the leaf when you
were a child
is singing still.
I am of years lived, so far, seventy-four,
and the leaf is singing still.

I'm so excited to have been asked to teach another class at Soul Fire Retreats
, and just when the muses had whispered, no sung, the seeds of this new class to me, I'm really looking forward to it, its going to be beautiful:
To pay attention- this is how we pray…
In this class we will be using photography and sketching as a means to bring us to a place of mindful presence, entering into the center of now and creating a silence that allows us to hear the songs all around and within in us.
There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the earth. Rumi
