ekwetzel I am grateful for all the writers whose words have forged paths through this world; for, when I've lost my way & am unsure of how to find Home, I place my feet inside the footprints others have left behind until I've made it out of the thicket and into the light. || This, to me, is why reading is life-giving. 3d

ekwetzel Today we started our first nature journals. Sitting on the forest floor, the scent of evergreen thick all about, pine needles pouring down from the canopy like rain...we hunted for fairies and gawked as woodpeckers flew from tree to tall tree, thumping their hunger into the humid summer air. #adventureisoutthere #wildandfreechildren #chatlottemasonliving #homeeducator 4d

ekwetzel When I look back on my life, I do not want to be nostalgic over the passing of happy memories. Instead, I want to be at peace, as remembering helps me trace back to the origins of my present joy. 6d

ekwetzel Look, the trees
are turning
their own bodies
into pillars
of light,
are giving off the rich
fragrance of cinnamon
and fulfillment,
the long tapers
of cattails
are bursting and floating away over
the blue shoulders
of the ponds,
and every pond,
no matter what its
name is, is
nameless now.
Every year
everything
I have ever learned
in my lifetime
leads back to this: the fires
and the black river of loss
whose other side
is salvation,
whose meaning
none of us will ever know.
To live in this world
you must be able
to do three things:
to love what is mortal;
to hold it
against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it
go,
to let it go. // In Blackwater Woods,
by Mary Oliver
