This could be my last post to this blog, at least for a time. It has marked my spiritual journey now for nearly two years, and I am finding it less and less compelling to write here. Most of the posts are timeless, and I hope others will continue to find quotes and commentary that is helpful or makes them think. I still welcome and will respond to comments.
As I begin the next phase of my life, I wish you well. Thanks to all who’ve stopped by.
We should all do what, in the long run, gives us joy, even if it is only picking grapes or sorting the laundry. ~E. B. White
The next message you need is always right where you are. ~Ram Dass
Turn your face to the sun, and the shadows fall behind you. ~Maori proverb
