An Awakened World

Well, blackberries and blueberries were in season, too – so naturally we never left the house without a basket in hand.

An amazing poem that is so pertinent today –


Imagine a world where land is known simply as Land ~
Not Russia or Africa, Australia or China or America or Antarctica,
Just one glorious graceland of God’s geography.

Imagine a world where people are known simply as People –
Not Indians or Persians, Asians or Americans, Aborigines or Africans,
Just one brilliant bouquet of flowering humanity.

Imagine a world where true religion is known simply as Kindness,
Not only Islam or Buddhism, Hinduism or Judaism, Christianity or Taoism,
Just one great circle of love, honoring all of creation.

Imagine this world often ~
One shifting from overpowering some to empowering all.
A planet evolving from “I love to have,” to “I have to love.”
A world that knows there are no sides
to a globe that is round.

– Diana Loomans

The Power of Love

Sidewalk in Valencia, Spain – Love is everywhere!

“Life’s the school, Love’s the lesson.”

“Oh dear – it is difficult to look back on the joy of those days; but on the other hand,
it is something rare to have in a life such joy, such luck, such love.
I knew my luck, knew it well as a sparrow when it finds a speck of bread all to itself.”
~ The Secret Scripture – Sebastian Barry


“We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive.
He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love.”
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
