What can I give you this morning,
this day when no words will be enough
to fill the gaping hollow
blasted wide open by yesterday?
Here is a waiting space
between breath and breath–
a quiet room, open and hushed
in the chambers of our lungs.
Here is an open door
in the moment between heartbeats–
a single silent moment in the space
between reality and shuddering reality.
The pause in the moment of blink
the tiny beat between the catch and the yawn
the release in the space between stretch and relax.
May today bring you moments of rest
between the roaring and the numbness
between the words and the silence
between the known and the unknown.
May you find shelter in those quiet rooms.
3. Finding the spaces
5. Finding the courage to live the life that I would love. (John O’Donohue quote)
May we walk in Beauty!
