Lily, Pond and Ripple

Any single path truly taken leads to all the others. Even then, you will find that outward and inward become the same direction. The centre of the wheel is everywhere.
Robin Morgan

You've been walking in circles searching. Don't drink by the water's edge. Throw yourself in. Become the water. Only then will your thirst end.
Jeanette Delmar

My choice is clear. I am stepping slowly into the quiet open land beyond. There are no roads, no maps, no guides. There is no insurance coverage, no training school. Edible vegetation is sparse. Rain trickles down my back as I fumble with reeds to make a hat. Through the mist I catch a thread of song and rise to see a band of barefoot sisters approach with open arms. With nothing more than faith and grace, our dance has just begun.
Kirstin George

Know the ship you sail on. Know its timbers. Deep the fjord waters where you sail, steep the cliffs, deep into the unknown coast goes the winding fjord.
Denise Levertov

I walk on the precarious edge of the new and the old, wanting to shed the locks and lies of a mechanical world, eager to dive into the smooth cool water of abundant life.
Jennifer Welwood

I'm not sure where this is going, but I am thinking of doing a regular post along these lines - every once in a while I need a simple evocative image like this one and some wise words to lift my spirits. At the moment, I am not sure whether it will be Sunday thing or a serendipity "when it happens" kind of thing.
