I really just want
to be warm yellow light
over everyone I love.

Each smallest act of kindness reverberates
across great distances and spans of time –
affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit
was the source of this good echo.

all else is beyond thee.

The Rose is without
She blooms because she blooms
She does not care for herself,
Asks not if she is seen.

The question is not
what you look at,
but what you see.
~Henry David Thoreau
Our main business is not to see what lies dimly at a distance,
but. . .what lies clearly at hand.

Perhaps the most important thing we bring to another person is the silence in us,
not the sort of silence that is filled with unspoken criticism or hard withdrawal.
The sort of silence that is a place of refuge, of rest, of acceptance of someone as they are.
We are all hungry for this other silence. It is hard to find.
In its presence we can remember something beyond the moment,
a strength on which to build . . .
Silence is a place of great power and healing.
