Perspective

“All life has emptiness at its core; it is the quiet hollow reed through which the wind of God blows and makes the music that is our life.” ~ Wayne Muller

What music emerges from you?

Ghost Hunters

“If the Ghost Hunters snuck up behind me as I was trying to write, they might see a universe of slave liberators, political agitators, Baptist preachers, exuberant orators, beloved writers and incomparable musicians – so many musicians – arrayed around me all in chorus, urging and cajoling and daring me to somehow dig a little deeper. ~ Touré

Who is daring you to dig deeper?

Sediment

“I want to touch you deeply, beneath the surface where our real stories lie. Touch you where the fragments of our being are, where the sediment of things that shaped us forms the verdant delta of our human story” ~ Richard Wagamese

What sediment do you find?

Stay seated

when Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama, in 1955, “Her silent defiance spoke for a whole people.” (Brian Lanker) … Regardless of how long she ruminated on her decision to resist, it was done with careful and precise thought. Her transformative act of justice was instituted without words. For is it not true that actions speak louder than words? Is it not true that I can show you better than I can tell you? ~ Barbara L.
