Note from Nature

O Ancient One,

your web hangs down from the pines.

I am of the Owl clan.

I have been to water,

my dress is of red clay.

He moves at the edge of you,

binds us with your threads.

The center of his soul shall be my soul’s center.

Our paths shall be white forever.

Where we move the paths from every direction

shall recognize each other.

We are one never to be parted.


—Prayer to Fix the Affections by Gladys Cardiff

I am constantly in a state of awe, wonder, doubt and unsure of how best to use this "one wild and precious life". Being involved with your efforts along with my contemplative pockets of time are the moments I feel I’m doing the right thing.
