Prayer

praying-with-open-hands

Today’s Word: ‘prayer’ as in … Mary Oliver who knows a thing or two about prayer and leads her remarkable poem by the same name with this terrific line:

“May I never not be frisky, / May I never not be risqué. / May my ashes, when you have them, friend, / and give them to the ocean / leap in the froth of the waves, / still loving the moment, / still ready, beyond all else, / to dance for the world.”

With thanks to Mary Oliver who reminds us that this is a perfect way to begin the month of August. Let’s use this prayer/poem every morning for a month and see how our lives and the lives of others are enriched.

(By the way: thank you all for such love yesterday. My word! What a remarkable bunch we all are together… better together.)
