Ephemeral Light.

“Let your mind be quiet, realizing the beauty of the world, and the immense, the boundless treasures that it holds in store.

All that you have within you, all that your heart desires, all that your nature so specially fits you for – that or the counterpart of it waits embedded in the great Whole,  for you.  It will surely come for you.

Yet equally surely not one moment before its appointed time will it come.  All your crying and fever and reaching out of hands will make no difference.

Therefore do not begin that game at all.” – Edward Carpenter

“Sacred space and sacred time and something joyous to do is all we need.  Almost anything then becomes a continuous and increasing joy.” – Joseph Campbell

Kousa Dogwood

Kousa Dogwood – varieties known as Chinese Dogwood and Japanese Dogwood – is a small, showy ornamental tree that blooms in mid- to late May. Because of its disease resistance to dogwood anthracnose, it is frequently planted as an alternative to the native flowering dogwood.

Kousa dogwood flowers about a month later than the flowering dogwood. Its crown is wider than tall and is relatively small in stature – 20-30 ft tall. As with flowering dogwood, the small inconspicuous green flowers are surrounded by large white, showy bracts. Its red fruits are said to look like big round raspberries. Fall colors range from dull red to maroon.

“While you are waiting patiently, take comfort and joy in simple Springtime rituals of rejuvenation.  A favorite of mine is to search for a new sacred space out in the world.  This reminds me that we carry our serenity with us.  A shady grove of trees in an old cemetery, a beautiful public garden….a museum gallery, the stacks of an old library, the hush of a quiet chapel where you can light a candle, even an outdoor cafe where you can bask in the sunshine can help you realize the boundless treasure and spiritual replenishment of a perfectly solitary hour. ” – Sarah Ban Breathnach
