Seek the light

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” To this day, especially in times of ‘disaster,’ I remember my mother’s words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers – so many caring people in this world.”   ~ Mr. Rogers

 

 

“The soul needs love as urgently as the body needs air.”

 

“There is a gravity within that continually weighs on us and pulls us away from the light.  Negativity is an addiction to the bleak shadow that lingers around every human form.  Within a poetics of growth or spiritual life, the transfiguration of this negativity is one of our continuing tasks.”  ~John O’Donohue

 

“In the arms of this low…..

Thread the light

Thread the light

Thread the light

Thread the light

Shine the light

Hide the light

Play the light

Give the light

See the light

Steal the light

Crave the light

Crave the light

Staying alive

Share the light

Show the light

Love the light

Raise the light

Crave the light

Thread the light

Spread the light”  ~Glen Hansard, from the song ‘This Low’

 

“The loss is not yours alone, she said & you will see it in their eyes when they do not think you are watching. How long does it take? I said & she put her hand on my chest & we did not speak.”  ~Brian Andreas

 

With the news of today’s tragic events in Connecticut, I took to the countryside for a walk with Iris.  Sending love and light to every soul touched by this sadness.
