“While routine aims to make the chaos of everyday life more containable and controllable, ritual aims to imbue the mundane with an element of the magical” Maria Popova (www.brainpickings.org)

I wake and begin my daily routine.

Then…

I pause and settle into my “spot” in the dark. I have been called to be a witness to the rising sun. The silence allows the whispers of a voice deep inside of me to be heard. As the invisible becomes visible, something ancient stirs within my bones. Streaks of light break out of the black along the horizon like knife blades cutting a new day, revealing a hidden gift; unknown to me, created just now, this very moment.

Imagining the possibilities, I embrace the gift and send gratitude out into the light….
