To light and love

A day of reflection, some sunlight after yesterday’s gray skies. A Sunday, a phone call from my sister, a new baby--the start of another generation. A lit candle, eve of a holiday, family traditions, childhood memories. Herbed chicken, stuffing, wine, chocolate, favorite things--and a toast to light and love.

Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love.

Each of us touches one place
and understands the whole in that way

The palm and the fingers feeling in the dark are
how the senses explore the reality...

If each of us held a candle there,
and if we went in together,
we could see it.
~ Rumi
