#SongsOfComfort

How can you hold this frightened world? My father had the strongest arms I've ever known. When I was little and afraid, he would wrap them around me and  tell me to listen to his heartbeat. Yesterday would have been his 120th birthday. He met Andy before he died and called him "sweetheart." These troubled days we still feel held in his arms when we go for long walks into

“I will not die an unlived life.
I will not live in fear
of falling or catching fire.
I choose to inhabit my days,
to allow my living to open me,
to make me less afraid,
more accessible;
to loosen my heart
until it becomes a wing,
a torch, a promise.
I choose to risk my significance,
to live so that which came to me as seed
goes to the next as blossom,
and that which came to me as blossom,
goes on as fruit.”
Dawna Markova, I Will Not Die an Unlived Life: Reclaiming Purpose and Passion

“Once you begin to acknowledge random acts of kindness - both the ones you have received and the ones you have given - you can no longer believe that what you do does not matter.”
Dawna Markova

“I don’t think anyone “finds” joy. Rather, we cultivate it by searching for the preciousness of small things, the ordinary miracles, that strengthen our hearts so we can keep them open to what is difficult”
Dawna Markova
