for the vitality hidden in your sleep.
To be human is to become visible
while carrying what is hidden as a gift to others.
To remember the other world in this world
is to live in your true inheritance.
You are not a troubled guest on this earth,
you are not an accident amidst other accidents
you were invited from another and greater night
than the one from which you have just emerged.
Now, looking through the slanting light of the morning window
toward the mountain presence of everything that can be
what urgency calls you to your one love?
What shape waits in the seed of you
to grow and spread its branches
against a future sky?
Is it waiting in the fertile sea?
In the trees beyond the house?
In the life you can imagine for yourself?
In the open and lovely white page on the writing desk?

Our week away from the farm was full of beauty and quiet time together. We are so thankful to all of you who helped on the farm this past week. We went without worries or cares, and our time spent drifting in canoes, and sitting by fires, filled us with enthusiasm for future trips in the north Maine woods.
Here are a few photos from our trip.
