Hem of Heaven

“And now in the serenity and quiet of this lovely place, touch the depths of truth, feel the hem of Heaven.” – Adlai Stevenson II

“Life is not a series of gig lamps symmetrically arranged; life is a luminous halo, a semi-transparent envelope surrounding us from the beginning of consciousness to the end.” – Virginia Woolf

Extraordinary is woven into ordinary days.
Beauty, light, color.
Slow long enough to look up and take it in.
Replenish and be filled.
Carry it forward into the world to amplify, magnify, multiply.
Feed the soul, lift the spirit to choose better.
Witness the hem of heaven.

Kindness over criticism.
Understanding over judgment.
Listening over solving.
Conversation over lecture.
Empathy over arrogance.
Learning over finished.
Optimism over cynicism.
Forgiveness over resentment.
Spirit over ego.
Inquiry over answers.
Deeper over surface.
Encouragement over opinion.
Love, without condition or measure.
Witness the hem of heaven so you can be the hem of heaven now and again.

“Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
