The moon and all

I was coming home today and I felt more than possibly could be described. I was happy with a new gift, all tender with meeting people I haven't seen for a long time, teary because my grief came back to me. I simply let tears fall. In the midst of all of it I watched the full moon and marveled with its beauty. How can the heart be filled with so much at once and know that all of this is life?

November treasure


I sat in a cafe waiting for someone and stared  adoringly at the pumpkin placed in the middle of the table. I thought how maybe God created them so we have our own little  sun in the dark November days, lighting up our longing for light. I can almost feel its creamy consistence warming up my body. Plumpy, generous and beautiful, they are my November treasure.
