Images and Impressions

IMG_9117

I am slowly and gently processing my trip to Wyoming. I don’t have many words of my own yet, but I do have photos and a poem. If you would like a few visual impressions, click to see my flickr album.  If you want a glimpse into my emotional state, read the poem below. I’ll have a guest post here on Friday, and hopefully some Wyoming reflections next week. Hope September is treating you kindly. S

I
Do not
Want to step so quickly
Over a beautiful line on God’s palm
As I move through the earth’s
Marketplace
Today.
I do not want to touch any object in this world
Without my eyes testifying to the truth
That everything is
My Beloved.
Something has happened
To my understanding of existence
That now makes my heart always full of wonder
And kindness.
I do not
Want to step so quickly
Over this sacred place on God’s body
That is right beneath your
Own foot
As I
Dance with
Precious life
Today.
– Hafiz, “Today”

  1. OMG Love the photos, love the poem, I am juiced and I didn’t even go. Can’t wait to hear more (but of course I will, and patiently too:)
    Love, Alison

  2. I looked through the flickr photos many times. I have chills. Just breathtaking. Like Alison, am anxious to hear more but know how important it is for you to take time to process. xoxo.
