The Annunciation to the Virgin

                                                 Print from a leaf of a choir book (1450/1460)

I found this beautifully matted and framed print at the Goodwill, two days before the feast day of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin.  Can you imagine?  What a find!

Holy Spirit, Giving Life to All Life

Holy Spirit,
Giving life to all life,
Moving all creatures,
Root of all things,
Washing them clean,
Wiping out their mistakes,
Healing their wounds,
You are our true life,
Luminous, wonderful,
Awakening the heart from its ancient sleep.

Hildegard of Bingen (12 century)

How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.
A.A. Milne
Winnie the Pooh
Tomorrow is the anniversary of my dad's death. He loved Winnie the Pooh so this little quote seems quite timely. Saying goodbye HAS been so hard.

This silence, this moment, every moment, if it's genuinely inside you, brings what you need. There's nothing to believe. Only when I stopped believing in myself did I come into this beauty. Sit quietly, and listen for a voice that will say, 'Be more silent.' Die and be quiet. Quietness is the surest sign that you've died. Your old life was a frantic running from silence. Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking. Live in silence. Rumi
