I was sitting in ceremony last weekend with my friends & colleagues from the TLG, contemplating a question facing us about Restoring Wholeness. We’d each found a spot to think and be silent beside a little stream, and I chose one in the sun at the base of a tall slim tree.
Busy at my task of thinking and being silent 🙂 it took me a few minutes to slow down. When I did, I started to notice things. I saw the lazy shadows of water-skimmers on the bottom of the creekbed, a brilliant butterfly skuttered past on my left, and with a start – I suddenly saw these tiny delicate leaf skeletons that were all around me.
