Thank you, Heather. One never knows if one has gone too far into the clouds for anyone to follow!

"Being. Simply and only being. This is our vastness, our divinity—the seed of enlightenment—here, always patiently waiting for our attention." Amen from a retired chaplain, and reminding me of John O'Donohue's observations in poetry/blessing. Thank you for this today.

That is a compliment of the highest order. Thank you, truly and humbly. Anam Cara was a pivotal book for me as a teenager. Perhaps it's time to read more of his oeuvre.

I think once a day of Mary Oliver's "I Happened To Be Standing". "I don't know where prayers go, or what they do..."

Thank you for reading and appreciating, fellower bender of the knee.
