My body is a wilderness

Oh how I love these words from Ojibway author Richard Wagamese, who left us earlier this year to walk with The Ancestors.

An orchard for a dome

In our busy lives, it's important to create balance ... taking time for quiet or solitude, for rest or meditation, to renew our connection to Source, to sustain our energies.
