“Love of Tender Things”

This is the unfair dilemma in which we find ourselves: how to hold the miraculous belonging, to accept the precious, joyous gift of kinship and community, while absorbing the telltale signs of a deeply unwell world and the unpreventable suffering of those we love.

 "The edge of autumn often harbors mist, particularly in the morning, in the creek valleys and mountain hollows... Mist is a threshold phenomenon. Sometimes one crosses the threshold swiftly, trailing clouds of glory and falling into the waiting, loving hands of a new life. More often, I suspect, one lingers, wondering, scanning the veiled horizon." // Lindsay's new post is up on the blog. (And spoiler alert, it includes a great birth story!) // Read more at the link in profile. #rollingridgestudyretreat
“You are in this time of the interimRolling Ridge Study Retreat
Where everything seems withheld.
The path you took to get here has washed out.
The way forward is still concealed from you.
The old is not old enough to have died away
The new is still too young to be born.”
