All The Small Things

I’m excited to announce that my third mini zine “Holy The Small” is now listed over on Etsy.

The sacred is exposed to us through the small, and this zine is an ode to all the small things that make up the bigger ones.

In the Garden of Shadows and Light

In the Garden of Shadows and Light

Have you ever talked back to the darkness? Perhaps even breathed into it. The light is just on the other side. It is through traversing the wild and untamable landscape of darkness that we can have a better understanding of our polarity. We become Warriors of Light by befriending the Dark.

“I have learned things in the dark that I could never have learned in the light, things that have saved my life over and over again, so that there is really only one logical conclusion. I need darkness as much as I need light.” ~ Barbara Brown Taylor, Learning to Walk in the Dark

The sacred is exposed to us through the small. All the small things brought together make up the bigger ones. Nothing larger is ever accomplished on it’s own. It’s in the small that the infinite is revealed. Small stories, small steps, small braveries… Holy the small.

The Long Way Home

Sometimes the only way home is the long way.

I took this quite literally the other day as I decided to walk home. After a while my bag was seemingly getting heavier on my shoulder with every step and my feet began to ache a little. Just as I started to regret my decision I came upon a patch of these beauties.

Anemone canadensis, or meadow anemone, spoke to me both literally and figuratively of the rewards of taking the longer way. Yes, there may have been a quicker and easier way home, but in taking the longer-not-so-easy way I got to enjoy the beauty around me. Sometimes in our day to day, as well as on our spiritual path, there is more to see, experience and learn while taking the longer way. Sometimes the longer way helps us to open our eyes and hearts to more of the beauty around us.
