earth day ~

“The ground's generosity takes in our compost and grows beauty! 

Try to be more like the ground.” Rumi

after a week that has frayed one's nerves, and tested one's patience and faith, I looked to the strength and resilience of mother nature.  Boston is now experiencing the season of new beginnings and new growth.  On this Earth day  I wish to share some of the images from my early morning walks with my hound, Scruffy. These early morning walks have given me solace this past week ~ 

collage from 1997 ~ 

When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
— Wendell Berry
