Sanctuary in the Wild
“We are stardust, we are golden, and we got to get ourselves back to the garden.”
The earth is dreaming through us, and we must awaken to it. In the dark primordial waters, we are born of the same matter as our solar system, the stars, and the earth. The sound of water rushes over rocks downstream like a lullaby; a palm frond waves without a single gust of wind; bird song carries me on its wings. I find sanctuary in wild places that live and breathe here and now – within and without. And I’ve witnessed two boys discovering the magic and mystery of the wild, a reminder that we too are wild.
