the earth heals us

Earth Day 2020

A native bee visits a stem of prairie blazing star
in the native plant garden my husband and I created
as an oasis for monarch butterflies and other pollinators.

As we work to heal the earth, the earth heals us.

~Robin Wall Kimmerer

miracles

Miracles, in the sense of phenomena we cannot explain,
surround us on every hand:
life itself is the miracle of miracles.

~George Bernard Shaw, (1856 – 1950)

 

to be simple, to be free

Tis the gift to be simple, ’tis the gift to be free,
‘Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
‘Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

~Shaker dancing tune, 1848
