“”I cannot think of taking the speck of dust out of my neighbour’s eye unless I’m working on the log in my own. Evil is here in me. Warfare is inside my own community, and I am called to be an agent of peace there. But warfare is also in me and I am called to seek wholeness inside of myself. Healing begins here, in me. Wholeness and unity begin inside of me. If I am growing toward wholeness, then I’ll be an agent of wholeness. If our community is an agent of wholeness, then it will be a source of life for the world around it.”

A dead white dove

 

Bizarre silk-shimmering dream

to wake up and

reach out to turbulent

velvet-glowing happiness,

and paint a picture

upside down.

 

I don’t know anylonger

why

the spinning sunegg has got

a dead white dove

and a tree the same size

inside.
