Breathe Together, by Jeff Foster

It’s easy to teach, to preach, to give memorized answers. It’s easy to be an expert. It’s harder to listen, to really listen. To be still and wait. To give someone space. To receive them with your whole being. When you think you know what’s “best” for someone, when you’re excited by your own vision, […]

The Peace of Wild Things, by Wendell Berry

There is a time for everything

To everything There is a season And a time to every purpose, under heaven. A time to be born, a time to die.A time to plant, a time to reap.A time to kill, a time to heal.A time to laugh, a time to weep. A time to build up, a time to break down.A time to dance, […]

I am not I, by Juan Ramón Jimenez

I am not I. I am this one walking beside me whom I do not see, whom at times I manage to visit, and whom at other times I forget; the one who remains silent while I talk, the one who forgives, sweet, when I hate, the one who takes a walk when I am […]
