What if you bowed before every dandelion you met and wrote love letters to squirrels and pigeons who crossed your path? ~ Christine Valters Paintner

Hope

Hope begins small with mustard seeds or yeast, a little bread and a few fish. Hope flourishes as we take time for beauty, rest and celebration, and reshapes our vision.

Bouquet

“The arts present the most powerful form of nonviolent resistance. …Reminders of beauty can present justice in words, images, and songs that draw us in and captivate our attention until their truth can reach our hearts and transform our communities.” ~ Makoto Fujimura, Culture Care

To break the dead shell of yesterdays,

To risk being disturbed and changed.” ~ John O’Donohue
