A Sacred Gift Woven Around the Heart of Wonder

Redwood Forest, California
May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven around the heart of wonder.

Become inclined to watch the way of rain
When it falls slow and free.


Imitate the habit of twilight,
Taking time to open the well of color
That fostered the brightness of day.


Draw alongside the silence of stone
Until its calmness can claim you.
Be excessively gentle with yourself.

Excerpts from two different works by
-John O'Donohue
(An Irish scholar, poet, philosopher)
