Wind blows. A leaf scuttles down the sidewalk.

She sits alone, staring into the tangled brush.

Walking by, he stops to follow her gaze.

Ribbons flutter in the branches.

A tear drops, silently.

A prayer before he sits and takes her hand.

Shared grief unites.

An unspoken promise of presence.

I enjoy all things beautiful, natural, whole and healthy. As a Quaker minister, mother of 3, and having been married 20 years, I know that life rarely reflects those virtues. (I experience my share of the ugly, plastic, broken and sick!) Still, I believe that love is the highest value, and strive in all that I do to love God and the people in my life to the fullest of my ability!
