Afternoon Thoughts!

Such a lovely day. Karen Roeper came by to give me the gift of a Rosen session. I feel now the trauma of the operation for me, and better understand how those of you who care for me also feel. Please be good to yourselves. This stuff is tough!

Karen brought me two wonderful poems from the incredible book "Love Poems from God" by Daniel Ladinsky.

They both are by St. John of the Cross.


A RABBIT NOTICED MY CONDITION

I was sad one day and went out for a walk;
I sat in a field.

A rabbit noticed my condition and
came near.

It often does not take more than that to help at times -

to just be close to creatures who
are so full of knowing,
so full of love
that they don't
- chat,

they just gaze with
their
marvelous understanding.





THEY CAN BE LIKE A SUN

They can be like a sun, words.

They can do for the heart
what light can
for a field.




So, sit with words and rabbits today. The world is young, and the fields are light.

Blessings to All,
Cathy
