I need to contemplate, meditate, and reflect… Continue reading My body is a wilderness
Occupy your moments
I recently came across the work of Richard Wagamese, Ojibway Author, and the lovely conversations between him and Old Woman which he shares on his Facebook page. Me: What is the secret to life? Old Woman: Learning to love it. Me: Even the hard parts? Even the pain? Old Woman: Especially those. When you reach… Continue reading Occupy your moments
