Peace for your Path...

"peace. it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart." (unknown)

happy earth day

In honor of the first Earth Day celebrated in 1970, please enjoy this poem by Christina Rossetti. Let us all, each uniquely human one of us, celebrate our interconnectedness to one another and to all the creatures who call our sacred planet "home".....

"Hurt No Living Thing"

Hurt no living thing;
Ladybird, nor butterfly,
Nor moth with dusty wing,
Nor cricket chirping cheerily,
Nor grasshopper so light of leap,
Nor dancing gnat, nor beetle fat,
Nor harmless worms that creep.

- Christina Rossetti
