Sanctuary in the Wild

“We are stardust, we are golden, and we got to get ourselves back to the garden.”

Joni Mitchell

 

The earth is dreaming through us, but we must awake to it.  I witness two boys discovering the magic and mystery of the wild,  a reminder that we are a part of nature and not separate from it.   There are wild places that live and breathe here and now, and once we forge this bond, it is forever a part of our inner sanctuary.  

 

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.  These gardens hold the key.
