Being -

Yesterday we savored soft rain.

Today, I look out on pink and blue as the sky comes to light.

I sit with these words of Annie Dillard from her book Teaching a Stone to Talk

“In the deeps are the violence and terror of which psychology has warned us. But if you ride these monsters down, if you drop with them farther over the world’s rim, you find what our sciences cannot locate or name, the substrate, the ocean or matrix or ether which buoys the rest, which gives goodness its power for good, and evil its power of evil, the unified field: our complex and inexplicable caring for each other, and for our life together here. This is given.  It is not learned.”
