This Day

Nothing is worth more than this day.

“…and pondered them in her heart.”

And they that heard it wondered at the things which the shepherds told.

But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.

Luke 2: 18-19

May we all ponder in our heart the things of special meaning to us.

Shadow of a Divine Perfection

The true work of art is but the shadow of a divine perfection.

—Michelangelo

On this day in 1512, the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel was opened to the public for the first time.

Several years later, I took this photo at one of my favorite haunts, Iargo Springs in the Huron National Forest, Michigan

Pass Over a Provocation

The discretion of a person defers his anger; and it is his glory to pass over a provocation.

–Proverbs 19

I needed a reminder of this proverb  today and a reminder of summer sunsets as Michigan heads into the grays of November.  Of course, it’s always something to keep in mind on social media.

Where Dusk is a Sheltering Cloak

The long day wanes: the slow moon climbs:
Come, my friends,
‘T is not too late to seek a newer world.
–Alfred Tennyson, Ulysses

On the shore of  a Northern lake, the lingering dusk is a sheltering cloak, an invitation
to contemplation.
