1.11.11 ~ morning. noon. night.
Utah Phillips is an often-quoted man around these parts, but these words in particular (from this much-loved album) fell in my lap yesterday. And it was just what I needed to hear at just the right time. (I love it when that happens.) Today I thought that maybe, just maybe, the same might be true for you.
"Time is an enormous, long river, and I’m standing in it, just as you’re standing in it. My elders are the tributaries, and everything they thought and every struggle they went through and everything they gave their lives to, and every song they created, and every poem that they laid down flows down to me – and if I take the time to ask, and if I take the time to see, and if I take the time to reach out, I can build that bridge between my world and theirs. I can reach down into that river and take out what I need to get through this world."
~ Utah Phillips
Wishing you a most beautiful day today, friends.
