a garden of solitude

a garden of solitude

To live a spiritual life
we must first find the courage
to enter into the desert of loneliness
and change it
by gentle and persistent efforts
into a garden of solitude.

~Henri Nouwen, (1932 – 1996)

    • All my life I’ve loved studying the secret perfection of flowers. The whole of nature is a sacred garden for us all. Thank you for ambling along the quiet garden path with me, dear friend. xoxo
