April 4

Tidings of Easter joy to you, my friend, and Love whose hope and home has always been you.


We, peaced together,

root with the Giver of Life —

Wave new Hosannas!

“…at the foundation of the soul, …something of our being presses deep into the heart of God… our source and substance, the ground of our own arising, the foundation of hope.” —Cynthia Bourgeault, Mystical Hope


The path of descent
into darkness, even death,
yields confounding grace.

Fall fearless into love. –https://wisdomchant.bandcamp.com/…/fall-fearless-into-love
While I long to say, “Yes, I fall fearless into love all the time,” my practice is more like the way I enter a cold swimming pool, one chilly step at a time. 🙂

Even little steps,
surrendering heart, mind, soul,
are met with big grace.


If you lose hope, somehow you lose that vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go on in spite of all. And so today I still have a dream. —The Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr.


“In water that departs forever and forever returns, we experience eternity.” ~Mary Oliver, Upstream

This reminds me so much of a recent quote journaled from Cynthia Bourgeault: “What kind of water might be the continuous source of its own replenishment?”


A little section of notes from this past weekend’s ‘Create in Me’ retreat at Lutheridge… an image that seems fitting to share as we who were part of the retreat are now called to live out what we experienced together. Perhaps another take on the expression, “It’s Friday, but Sunday’s coming” would be “It’s Sunday, and Monday’s coming.”



grateful for so many friends who live this… you inspire me
