My friends, Kathleen Bryant, RSC, and Patricia Lenihan, RSC in Muir Woods
It was not like taking the veil, no solemn abjuration of the world, I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay till sundown for going out I found that I was really going in.
- John Muir
Jesus told us that we cannot live on bread alone. John Muir may not have been thinking about Jesus’ words when he wrote the following, but he certainly had the wisdom of the Spirit of Creation when he wrote:
Everyone needs beauty as well as bread, places to play and pray, where nature heals and gives strength to body and soul alike.

Creation – Poetry – Music – Art
You could add the ways that beauty preaches to you, and what it says.
According to John Muir, “Everyone needs beauty as well as bread, places to play and pray, where nature heals and gives strength to body and soul alike.”
