Gifts of grace…..

A sky of milky glass as the tide arrives with a respectful hush and in silence life flows with shafts of sparkling light.

Deep gratitude felt for stillness and the graceful gift of vulnerability, as light shining through the cracks creates space for creativty and change.

“Hope is the thing with feathers, that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without the words, and never stops – at all” Emily Dickinson

    I so love these tranquil shades of autumn – beautiful writing, Jane. And then some Emily Dickenson, too…

    Thank you for the intro to the Emile Dickenson poem – it is a beauty! Your peaceful image over the waters had the disturbing effect of sending my thoughts to those poor people in Houston dealing with the deluge poured upon them by Harvey. It is good that most waters convey calm as does the man/woman – made stream in my back yard!
