Thomas Merton -
The imagination should be allowed a certain amount of time to browse around.
T.S. Eliot -
I said to my soul, be still and wait ....
So the darkness shall be the light,
and the stillness the dancing.
Today I saw a grebe, a cormorant, and three mallard ducks. The tide was out, and there was very little water in the slip of the bay near where I live. All waits at times for the tide to return.
