Like a sponge…

Soaking up the luscious green of Ireland
Feeling the presence of ancestors
Creating poetry with addicts and alcoholics
Holding space for compassionate listeners

Snuggling with my kitty
Listening to the thunderstorm of night
Stretching my weary body
Birthing the dreams of my soul

...I am saturated.

Snuggling, stretching, soaking up Lucy's Glendolough memories! Hugs for Asian!

Saturated, sated, satisfied, sustained - the alliteration pours out of my Dr. Seuss mind but my Merton/O'Donohue mind recognizes the beauty of the photo, your words, and your rest.

Lucy, BTW - I see you have "How the Irish Saved Civilization" on your bookshelf - a great book. We're both fans of Thomas Cahill books:)
