The Stillness of the Quiet

In the stillness of the quiet,
if we listen we can hear
the whisper of the heart
giving strength to weakness,
courage to fear, hope to despair.

Howard Thurman

Of Note: This quote was posted yesterday, 9-11, at It would seem that after that fateful life-changing day, a spiritual quiet settled over the world just for an instant. This moment was the promise that we will return to that place someday because we have felt and heard it. Our collective actions will determine how soon that day arrives.

Today's Weather Report: Clouds cover the sky from horizon to horizon, but the rain has stopped for the time being--though it looks like rain any minute. The garden is starting to wind down, and that has created moments of quiet for me. After a very busy summer, the fall is welcome.
