It doesn't have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few
small stones; just
pay attention, then patch

a few words together and don't try
to make them elaborate, this isn't
a contest but the doorway

into thanks, and a silence in which
another voice may speak.

~ Mary Oliver

Spending lots of time in my sweet yoga room. Sitting. Lighting a couple candles (the big one above is the unity candle from mine and Andy's wedding over 10 years ago). Doing yoga. Writing. And praying.

I love Mary's instructions for prayer. Just paying attention and patching a few words together of thanks and gratitude. Hope too.

May you and all of yours be well today.
