The stars are in our belly; the Milky Way our umbilicus.
Is it a consolation that the stuff of which we’re made
is star-stuff too?
– That wherever you go you can never fully disappear –
dispersal only: carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen.
Tree, rain, coal, glow-worm, horse, gnat, rock.

small candles in dark times
(William Stafford, from 'A Ritual to read to Each Other')
Thank you, my friends, for visiting here, as well as for keeping those small candles burning in the lives you live, as I know you all do. Let's not forget that together we're hugely powerful; and the changes, no matter how small, start with us.
