birds on a wire.

(snow walk, February 12, 2010)

So, like children, we begin again
to learn from the things,
because they are in God's heart;
they have never left him.

This is what the things can teach us:
to fall,
patiently to trust our heaviness.
Even a bird has to do that
before he can fly.

Rainer Maria Rilke


Also. A very happy birthday to one of my dearest friends and current roomie.
Love you to the moon and back.
