Equus Passage

Equus: a horse, a beast used for carrying or pulling loads.

Passage: a slow, cadenced trot executed with great elevation of the feet and characterized by a moment of suspension before the feet strike the ground.

Yeah…a moment before the feet strike the ground, a brief second of suspension in the continuation of a walk. That is what I pray these words…of prayers, quotes, Bible verses, utterances by friends or myself…shared on Tuesdays, will be; an elevated lightness mid-step.


Somewhere we know that without silence words lose their meaning,  that without listening speaking no longer heals, that without distance closeness cannot cure.

Henri J. M. Nouwen


May God’s peace lighten this day.
