Luminosity

 

“Look carefully around you and recognize the luminosity of souls. Sit beside those who draw you to that.”

-Rumi

“…with thankful attention… looking back…I can always tell which moments had taken on the restful luminosity.  There is a certain stillness, or completion, about them.”

-Hannah Hinchman

“The perceptions of middle age have their own luminosity.”

-Gail Sheehy

“I try to live in the luminosity of things.”

-Meia Geddes

Some Kiss We Want

There is some kiss we want with
our whole lives, the touch of
 
spirit on the body. Seawater
begs the pearl to break its shell.
 
And the lily, how passionately
it needs some wild darling! At
 
night, I open the window and ask
the moon to come and press its
 
face against mine. Breathe into
me. Close the language-door and
 
open the love window. The moon
won’t use the door, only the window.

From Soul of Rumi

-Kate Chopin

Rocks - Time

“The earth has music for those who listen.”

-George Santayana

Absorbed and immersed in the music, greens, life energy, breath of the earth’s longest day among 365.  Solstice!  A sweet celebration to breath into…
