    Often I walk through my life and there are those "stand still" moments.  Sometimes it is the simplicity of a flower or song of a bird, gallop of a colt...to ...rows of stacked hay or the moon framed perfectly by trees or mountains.  Whether you call the Light, God, Budda, Wakan Takasila...etc...the awesomeness of the love fills my spirit.

    The miracle that a new little baby represents. Tall, majestic mountains! smile

    Here is a poem about Grace from the perspective of an astronaut upon returning to Earth: by e. lee caleca


    falling into the sea
    the earth's atmosphere has jolted the mighty calm of space from my memory
    the gentle world of the galaxy
        now appearing to travel in the sky
    was an interlude pulling me like a summerfly into the dazzling Throne room of God

    reaching for the horizon, our star, with lethal breath and glance
        burns like a deceitful woman

    i have formed an emotional connection to the flight of the thin crescent moon chasing the army of stars
        a creature full of eyes
        the silver keys of Heaven

    adjusting to life back on earth
        as darkness takes hold of the night
    i lay awake for a week of moon filled evenings
    interpreting the form of the illusionary arc in the sky
    the tongue of the wind reaches me on a ray of celestial light

    “if it wasn't really there you'd be lucky not to know,” it whispers.
    “you don't see Grace if you won't go anywhere near it."

    i've seen things i never thought i'd see
    this, for a moment, was mine

    Another Grace I ponder with awe is Gracie Allen. "No, thank you."
