Thoughts from a spiritual seeker, farmer, and naturalist at rest along the journey at Centering Porch, a rural retreat. Embedded in nature’s sanctuary, these musings reflect what is immediate but often missed- the b:link -interwoven with creative process- the long view. All part of the journey, refreshed with poetry and persistent gratitude.

renascence at the new year
New Year 2018
…It is not strange though it is mysterious that our “New
Year” comes at the darkest time in the seasonal cycle. When there is personal
darkness, where there is pain to overcome, when we are forced to renew
ourselves against all the odds, the psychic energy required simply to survive
has tremendous force, as great as that of a bulb pushing up through the icy
ground in spring, so after the overcoming, there is extra energy, a flood of
energy that can go into creation.
