One Last Beginning (Can You Feel the Crispness?)

It happened during a quick after-work drive through my hometown. It was the last hour of golden evening daylight. Townsend, where I grew up, is a very small and very average town. (Seriously, click the link.) It sits along the north-central edge of Massachusetts, and it’s one of the greatest places on Earth. I endedContinue reading “One Last Beginning (Can You Feel the Crispness?)”

  When the snow ceases at long last to fall – Though few remain long enough to ever know – The sky at long last clears of clouded shroud, The stars beyond at long last revealed once more, And it’s late as the moon rises, Formidable yet waning down over the new-fallen snow.   HowContinue reading “How Many Smiling Alpacas Can we fit into One Simple Prayer?

Happy new year, happy new moon, happy new week. As we approach the beginnings of things, Our days still short, nights still long, Weather still horrible for months to come, May we approach only after we take a deep breath, Only after we allow a moment of quiet, Only if we release the heaviness ofContinue reading “New Week, New Year, New Blessing”

Until that transition is complete, let us pause to the benefit of our soul’s cardiac health. May smiling alpacas be waiting to greet you atContinue reading “Monday Blessing: Slap a Bow on it and Stick it Under the Tree”

We Missed the Dawn!: A Unity Tuesday Blessing

The truth is that we missed the dawn today. Today’s dawn awakened before we did. These are the days when light reigns supreme, Prancing atop the heights and dancing down below, Perching and waiting and grinning for us, Sitting there already in front of us as we open our eyes. So it begins: Unity Tuesday.Continue reading “We Missed the Dawn!: A Unity Tuesday Blessing”
