begin

 

A very sweet light is spreading over the Earth like perfume.  The moon is slowly dissolving and a boy-sun languidly stretches his translucent arms…Cool murmurings of pure waters that surrender themselves to the hillsides.  A pair of wings dances in the rosy atmosphere.  Silence my friends.  The day is about to begin.

~ Clarice Lispector

“The most valuable thing we can do for the psyche, occasionally, is to let it rest, wander, live in the changing light of room, not try to be or do anything whatever.”

ranunculus shadow

 for light, shadow and some supermarket blooms, as the days grow a bit longer

For a fleeting moment we pause and note the sunlight on the sheets as we make the bed,  note the warm sun on our cup as we sip tea,  or note the fading light on the curtain as we enter the room.  And we let out a breath or sigh.  Pausing.

One of the most calming and powerful actions you can do to intervene in a stormy world is to stand up and show your soul. Struggling souls catch light from other souls who are fully lit and willing to show it.

~ Clarissa Pinkola Estes

If only I could have bottled up all that warm autumn light.  Yesterday I awoke to the first snow of the season.  A very different world out there now, a colder light, a quieter sort of beauty.

The snow is gone, the light is changing and we spring forward this weekend.
Cheers to longer days!
