For One Who is Exhausted


If you've been feeling drained by the push & pull of this short month we hope these words by Irish philosopher & poet John O'Donohue are a mental balm - read, breathe & repeat. 
And if you haven't listened to it already his interview with Krista Tippet is one of our all time favorite On Being episodes. 

'You have traveled too far over false ground;
Now your soul has come to take you back.

Take refuge in your senses, open up
To all the small miracles you rushed through.

Become inclined to watch the way of rain
When it falls slow & free.

Imitate the habit of twilight,
Taking time to open to the well of color
That fostered the brightness of day.

Draw alongside the silence of stone
Until its calmness can claim you.
Be excessively gentle with yourself.'

Emily L'Ami
