We are designed to encounter this life with amazement and wonder, not resignation and endurance. This is at the very heart of our grief and sorrow. The dream of full-throated living, woven into our very being, has often been forgotten and neglected, replaced by a societal fiction of productivity and material gain. This is part of the work of honoring our grief …When we fully honor our many losses, our lives become more fully able to embody the wild joy that aches to leap from our hearts into the world. – Francis Weller

“Thank You! We must accept finite disappointment, but we must never lose infinite hope. “

Roaring water in the brook cascaded down around the rocks forming small waterfalls.
The reassuring sound of splashing and gurgling put my mind at ease.
I felt grateful for the trails with the beautiful surrounding nature.
