I can hear Her breathing…


Sitting on the earth before it
I feel it

Life force, energy

Powerful, potent

running throughout

Everything is something

Life prevails and is beautiful.

–Molly, April 30, 2002

Several years ago, I jotted this down while sitting next to a special rosebush in my front yard. I was thinking about it this morning and realizing that today I would personalize that “it” as Goddess, but also that I’ve had a sense of “it”–this divine web of incarnation–for a long time.

She is always whispering to us

we may call Her by different names

yet She is always there

even when we forget to listen


My attention was caught by these quotes via Facebook this week:

“‎The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. [She] to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand wrapt in awe, is as good as dead.” —Albert Einstein

“‎What you are basically, deep, deep down, far, far in, is simply the fabric and structure of existence itself.”
~ Alan Watts

“So for me the Goddess was just a certainty, easy to contact, no need for temples. All you need is to walk out in nature. If you have nothing, just a blade of grass, you pray with that one blade of grass and she will still come. It seemed like a loving, ever present deity who liked to take care of her own, appreciated being prayed to.” ~ Z Budapest
