A lifetime isn't long enough for the beauty of this world

A lifetime isn't long enough for the beauty of this world and the responsibilities of your life.

~ Mary Oliver

Prayer is a dipping of oneself toward the light

And as with prayer, which is a dipping of oneself toward the light, there is a consequence of attentiveness to the grass itself, and the sky itself, and to the floating bird. . . . I too dip myself toward the immeasurable.

~ from "Winter Hours" by Mary Oliver
