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 third in a series of blessings based on these places.
Blessing of the Forest
May the morning mist soften our sight
May the sapling-split sunbeam awaken our attention
May the life of centuries past
Cushion our steps
Ease our minds
And root our restless souls.
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!
