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 – “Praying” from Thirst: 2006
First of February and the River of Stones 2012 is over. But the habit remains, and this poem of Mary Oliver’s is in the front of my journal where I scribble my “paying attention” moments, and my mental “snapshots”.
I want to continue sharing my “stones” as I find them, and also some from my collection, from moments in the past. It may not be on a daily basis but do please click on the “follow me” button, drop by when you can, and leave a comment if you want to.
