Today's Gem of Grace in the Gray Areas: More Listening

Following on my review of the Mark Nepo book Seven Thousand Ways to Listen in my last post, I just found this glorious quote from a favorite author from my childhood who I'm rediscovering in a new light in adulthood:

Part of doing something is listening.
We are listening. To the sun. To the stars. To the wind. 
                                       (Madeleine L'Engle, Swiftly Tilting Planet)


  1. The ultimate description of my relationship to the sun. I never understood until now. Yes. I listen.
