Solstice Blessings for the Weekend! /|\

June 19th, 2020

May you have a blessed and happy Solstice! May we each take a moment to give thanks this weekend! 

It doesn’t have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few
small stones; just
pay attention, then patch
a few words together and don’t try
to make them elaborate, this isn’t
a contest but the doorway
into thanks, and a silence in which
another voice may speak.

~ Mary Oliver
