…”how the emptiness
will bear forth
a new world
that you cannot fathom
but on whose edge
you stand.” Jan Richardson

What do you see when you peer over the edge?

The growing edge

“Look well to the growing edge! … It is the extra breath from the exhausted lung, the one more thing to try when all else has failed, the upward reach of life when weariness closes in upon all endeavor. This is the basis of hope in moments of despair, the incentive to carry on when times are out of joint, the source of confidence when worlds crash and dreams whiten into ash. … Look well to the growing edge!” Howard Thurman

Where is your growing edge?

Weary and worn

“I’ve got the children to tend
The clothes to mend
The floor to mop
The food to shop
Then the chicken to fry…

…Storm, blow me from here
With your fiercest wind
Let me float across the sky
‘Til I can rest again.” Maya Angelou

In the midst of the storm, what helps you float?

Being alive

“Find out what makes you most alive and do that, for what the world needs, more than anything else, is people who are fully alive.” Howard Thurman

When do you feel fully alive?
