“Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery it is. In the boredom and pain of it, no less than in the excitement and gladness: touch, taste, smell your way to the holy and hidden heart of it, because in the last analysis all moments are key moments, and life itself is grace.”― Frederick Buechner, Now and Then: A Memoir of Vocation
Spark to flame.
Reignite your senses.
Beauty the match.
Eyes, ears, imagination, heart.
Sharpen, hone, tune.
Compass of joy, wonder, hope, grace.
The quality of looking, of listening.
Senses reawakened to now.
“When our eyes are graced with wonder, the world reveals its wonders to us. There are people who see only dullness in the world and that is because their eyes have already been dulled. So much depends on how we look at things. The quality of our looking determines what we come to see.”― John O’Donohue, Beauty: The Invisible Embrace
