Things I Need

Things I Need March 30, 2011

Things I am in need of, to restore my spirit:

  • Solitude.  Lots of it.
  • Mornings (plural!) of sunlight, coffee and home.
  • Meeting for worship, and an encounter there with God.
  • The smell of an old book.
  • Baking bread and hanging laundry in the sun.
  • The sound of birdsong.
  • Rushing water.
  • The smell of clean earth, and the living light of the forest.
  • The sight of a deer through trees, a hawk in the sky, and an indignant red squirrel, tail thrashing at my impertinence.

(Soon.  Please, Lady, soon.)
