" Sometimes you need to step off the worn path,
lay down with your eyes up to the blue sky,
interlock your fingers behind your head,
& let the grace grow up around you."
: Leo Christopher :
Marveling at the way I'm centered here,
grounded, connected to the best parts of myself.
A quieting of the heart,
a settling of the soul.
I walk with sure-footedness,
rooted in the here and now.
This place that welcomes me into
its loving arms.
