Monday, December 16

I had not encountered David Whyte until Mary Ann Buckley, a soul friend of many years and a poet herself, introduced him (http://www.davidwhyte.com). “Enough” reminds me of Mary Oliver’s “Waging Peace” (posted Dec 2). Habits of beauty and of stillness expect that there waits more than I expect. Waits anywhere.

Last full work week of 2013, and lovely snow all around. Have a good day.

Enough. These few words are enough.
If not these words, this breath.
If not this breath, this sitting here.

This opening to the life
we have refused
again and again
until now.
