We made it!
With a song in our heart and a whole lot of giggles we arrived safely to our POD.
Tenderly, as we drove those many miles, excerpts from an old Walt Whitman poem danced playfully through my heart and my head.
Song of the Open Road
BY WALT WHITMAN
Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road,
Healthy, free, the world before me,
The long brown path before me leading wherever I choose.
Henceforth I ask not good-fortune, I myself am good-fortune,
Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing,
Done with indoor complaints, libraries, querulous criticisms,
Strong and content I travel the open road.
You road I enter upon and look around, I believe you are not all that is here,
I believe that much unseen is also here.

You air that serves me with breath to speak!
You objects that call from diffusion my meanings and give them shape!
You light that wraps me and all things in delicate equable showers!
You paths worn in the irregular hollows by the roadsides!
I believe you are latent with unseen existences, you are so dear to me.
The walls of Jericho came down with song!
Song from the Spirit!
They encamped around those walls for seven days and with a SHOUT, a triumphant SHOUT those walls came down!!
We are (Day 3) post election and I’m here, in my little space in the universe,
Worshipping because I have heard it said, “Worship precedes a miracle!”
And that’s what I want for our Country.

it’s the monday giggles…
Peace is gazing at the stars with the knowledge you know their creator.

When Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, in the days of King Herod, behold, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, “Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star at its rising and have come to do him homage.” When King Herod heard this, he was greatly troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. Assembling all the chief priests and the scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Messiah was to be born. They said to him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it has been written through the prophet:
‘And you, Bethlehem, land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; since from you shall come a ruler,
who is to shepherd my people Israel.’”
Matthew 2: 1-6
