‘Tune into the trees, the waters, the birds flying by … There’s so much more peace, beauty & love than what’s being broadcasted. Real life is where you are.’

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

Nature…every part melting into another

May 13, 2015


“…bulbs of the Yellow fawn lily are an important food of the grizzly bear and Mule deer.”

“As I look at Nature I see ho every part melts into another in a great transmutation – – one part could not exist without the others.  In human nature the fusion of love and thought makes us One.  In the true meeting of hearts and minds there is scarcely even the need of words.  I know that in the One Mind there cannot be misunderstanding, in the One love all are included.”
