I’ve intentionally spent time in varied landscapes this summer, which has led to a more vivid appreciation of the uniqueness and unity of our natural world. Here is the second in a series of blessings based on these places.
Blessing of the Mountains
May the thin sharp air clear our confusion
May the sudden sunrise kindle our joy
May the expanse of the summit uplift our souls
May the rush of the falls echo our love for the world
May the unimpeded stars soar our spirits
May the shelter of the valley hold safe our dearest dreams
SUMMER BOOK LIST: I hope this season has offered a window for reflection and replenishment. Firefly season in New England has already faded, but we are still near peak blueberry production, which means there is plenty of time for summer reading!
