I am so deeply immersed in working on projects for my new book that I am rarely blogging these days,
but I do have a couple of things that I wanted to share with you….
The first is a pic that I just love… it’s me, dancing with our sweet grandbaby a few weeks ago, while Jim’s trio was playing.
I love how Jim is peeking over my shoulder!
The second thing that I really wanted to share with you is this poem by John O’Donohue…
It expresses my feelings so perfectly!
May you have days and nights that are beautiful, happy and blessed!
A Blessing for the New Year
by John O’Donohue from
‘To Bless the Space Between Us”
On the day when
The weight deadens
On your shoulders
And you stumble,
May the clay dance
To balance you.
And when your eyes
The gray window
And the ghost of loss gets into you,
May a flock of colors,
Indigo, red, green
and azure blue,
Come to awaken in you
A meadow of delight.
When the canvas frays
In the curragh of thought
And a stain of ocean
Blackens beneath you,
May there come across the waters
A path of yellow moonlight
To bring you safely home.
May the nourishment of the earth be yours,
May the clarity of light be yours,
May the fluency of the ocean be yours,
May the protection of the ancestors be yours.
And, so may a slow
Wind work these words
Of love around you,
An invisible cloak
To mind your life.
