Burnt By the Flames

Dive deeply into the miracle of life
and let the tips of your wings be burnt by the flame,
let your feet be lacerated by the thorns,
let your heart be stirred by human emotion,
and let your soul be lifted beyond the earth.

Pir Vilyat Inayat Khan

Of Note: Life is described by the ancient seers as a flame. Not figuratively, but rather literally. Fall is a perfect season to contemplate Life as fire. During this colorful time of year, the signs are everywhere to behold, thus making it easier for the brain to bring through from the mind the incendiary nature of Life.

Today's Weather Report: Yahoo, the sun is showing itself even if it was 34 degrees when I awoke. Last night, I brought in the huge datura, the last of my porch plants, and not a moment too soon. Should get up into the 50's by this afternoon which is all I need to finish the paint job Jim started on the barn. Mind you, this is a little barn, not one of those mammoth structures built for dairy farms. Only have a couple more hours before the job is complete and that should take care of the painting for the year. Already starting to plan next year's work, though. It will give me something to do over the long winter months quickly approaching.
