Wednesday of Hope – Dance Anyway

No despair of ours can alter the reality of things, or stain the joy of the cosmic dance which is always there. Indeed we are in the midst of it, and it is in the midst of us, for it beats in our very blood, whether we want it to or not. Yet the fact remains that we are invited to forget ourselves on purpose, cast our awful solemnity to the winds, and join in the general dance.
– Thomas Merton

Enjoying the Spring

It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.

In a time of destruction, create something: a poem, a parade, a community, a school, a vow, a moral principle; one peaceful moment.

– Maxine Hong Kingston

Wednesday of Hope – Trusting the Chaos

Whenever there is chaos, it creates wonderful thinking. I consider chaos a gift.

Where Do YOU Find Beauty?

If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere.

Wednesday of Hope – Indomitable Expectation

At the bottom of the heart of every human being there is something that goes on indomitably expecting, in the teeth of all experience of crimes committed, suffered and witnessed, that is good and not evil will be done to her. It is this above all that is sacred in every being.

– Simone Weil
