Heron Dance!

I open my Heron Dance email and here are these two quotes.  I was just writing to someone about synchronicity.  Comfort comes.   I will try and find a place to stay in touch while I am in Monterey and Carmel, but, just in case, these are beautiful words to savor and treasure. 

I do not believe that sheer suffering teaches. If suffering alone taught, all the world would be wise, since everyone suffers. To suffering must be added mourning, understanding, patience, love, openness, and the willingness to remain vulnerable.

Anne Morrow Lindbergh


Sorrow prepares you for joy. 
It violently sweeps everything out of your house,
so that new joy can find space to enter. 
It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart,
so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. 
It pulls up the rotten roots,
so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow.
Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart,
far better things will take their place.

Jalaluddin Rumi
