Alan - sunrise - Palm Springs area

Good Morning!!



I'm living in the energy of delight this day.   The sun gives light to the hill.  


 

William Butler Yeats –

We can make our minds so like still water that beings gather about us, that they may see, it may be, their own images, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer life because of our quiet.

Poetry and Spires -

To read a poem in January is as lovely as to go for a walk in June.

~Jean-Paul Sartre




I met Elaine in the city this morning and we visited the Andy Goldsworthy spire. One of the men who helped Andy was there and explained about Andy and how it was made and all the trees that are being planted around it, so it is a mix of the old and the new. It was so inspiring. The air is crisp, cold, and clear here, and my heart is alight with joy and possibility now that we have humane and ethical leadership again.

Also, because of Chinese New Year, the children in SF are off school today. What a treat for all!!

Happy Chinese New Year! Do something that you want to inspire the rest of your year today. I communed with trees.
