GETTING DARKER – the nights are certainly drawing in and the temperature is a hint cooler, but fingers crossed for a late heatwave
RABBI ABRAHAM HESCHEL – his words in his old age:’ I did not ask for success: I asked for wonder.’ And wonder is giving (and calling) attention to the world in order to praise it.
A BLESSING OF ANGELS (J O ‘D) May the Angels in their beauty bless you. May they turn towards you streams of blessings. May the Angel of Welcoming stir your heart to come alive to the eternal within you, to all the invitations that quietly surround you…….’
