Vote for Hope

I got turned on to this great Flash video in David Sibbet’s blog this morning… It’s another great example of new media and creativity in the service of something that matters. And this is something that matters a lot right now, even if the recent debates have been less than electric.

Barack Obama’s passionate speech in this video reminds me why I want him to be our next president.

Married to Amazement


"When it’s over, I want to say: all my life I was a bride married to amazement.
I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms."
~ Mary Oliver

Delighted by Beauty

I SO love having a camera as part of my eye …


"There is a crack,
There is a crack
in everything.
That is where
the light gets in."
~ Leonard Cohen

Inexhaustable Sweetness

Walking through a friend’s rose garden the other day … this one opened to greet my lens:


In my in-box this morning, a quote from my friend Liz:

"There is in all things an inexhaustible sweetness and purity, a silence that is a fount of action and joy. It rises up in wordless gentleness and flows out to me from the unseen roots of all created being, welcoming me tenderly, saluting me with indescribable humility."

~ from Thomas Merton‘s poem, Hagia Sophia.
