Sunday night musings

Goodness! Life has been blowing by at such terrific speeds lately. This hasn't left much room for blogging but I promise that new postings are forthcoming.


In the meantime, let me share with you two quotes that came to my attention recently.

"Like the roots of a tree, it's what lies beneath that allows us to grow."
~ Marin, Men in Trees

"When you do something, you should burn yourself completely, like a good bonfire, leaving no trace of yourself." ~ Shunryu Suzuki, Zen priest

I like this idea of reaching down in the core of one's being for all that nourishes us deeply as much as I like the idea of putting ourselves out there into the world with gusto and flourish. Both say much about this cycle of internal/external -- ebb/flow -- inhale/exhale. We must have both in our lives and the trick, methinks, is not only making room for them but balancing them once we have them. Something I've been mulling over lately.
