What a beautiful passage. Its amazing what we can see clearly if we just slow down or stop for awhile to really listen to our hearts and minds.

To center down is to find inner peace and know what you are in this world. Very nice poem indeed! Nice post!


How ya doin'? Miss your voice. Hope you had fun with the marvelous Ms Pearl-McPhee.

I find a walk in the redwoods the best way to Center down. Its just so darn good to realize just how SMALL and unimportant we all really are. Thanks for sharing; I realize not everyone is lucky enough to live near a Redwood grove.

Beautiful blog post -- beautiful blog. I've printed this poem and have it on my office wall, right next to me.

Off to center down . . .


Hi Juno, just this morning I was rifling through your not knitting links, and I read Jennifer Lawler's piece called For Jessica. It centered me down, way down to my core. That thing about putting the stars back together, in the best way you can. Thanks.


It could just as easy be "eternal" vs. "Eternal". The lack of initial cap changes things from my perspective.

How timely this post is. You've some inkling of my life in Pgh, and this resonates strongly. Thank you!


i don't think of eternity as religious, more like "the fact that time goes on forever."


Wow. this is amazing! Thanks for sharing.
