Spider Lily, Long Key Natural Area, Davie, FL, AUG 2013
The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad,
the desert shall rejoice and blossom;
like the crocus it shall blossom abundantly,
and rejoice with joy and singing.
Where do you see the blessings in your life?
There are the every day things for which we are grateful,
the relationships, the way that the sun lights up the sky at dawn and dusk, the smell of wood warmed in the sun, mown grass, a forest after the rain. And then there are these other moments, rarer still, which for an instant seem to lift the veil of heaven itself, filling one's heart until it seems like it will burst from joy, like every song we've ever loved all at once pouring forth, rejoicing.
