This morning I am with two quotes.  First this:

A community is like a ship; everyone ought to be prepared to take the helm.

                                                          - Henrik Ibsen

It seems appropriate on voting day in CA.  We are trying to fight Big Tobacco, and add a $1.00 tax to each pack of cigarettes.  The ads have been fantastic.  I'm hopeful this will pass.

In addition, there is excitement about the transit of Venus.  That, plus the full moon last night is an invitation to look up and out, to feel more deeply this earth on which we spin.  Kabir reminds us to also sit inside.  

Don’t go outside your house to see the flowers.
My friend, don’t bother with that excursion.
Inside your body there are flowers.
One flower has a thousand petals,
That will do for a place to sit.
Sitting there you will have a glimpse of beauty
inside the body and out of it,
before gardens and after gardens.


The air is filled with butterflies.  Their flight weaves inside and out.
