welcome to the world

there are some moments
at which we should only look sideways
because to face them head on will blind us

moments where words like wonder
and awe
are completely inadequate;

where we search in vain for new words
as yet uninvented
to tell of the truth

moments where it seems impossible
that we will ever forget
how extraordinary,
how remarkable
this life is.

until we do

so in this moment,
when we stand blinded by fragility
and wonder
we pause

and for all those moments we forget,
we take a breath
and say


Welcome little Lucy – the world seems richer already for you being here. And much love to Sue, Jeff and Henry.

    I’ve been following your blog here for a while after Jonny pointed to you a while back. I have been meaning to say thank you for what you share here fro quite a while. Your understanding of the imagery nature of the human mind in worshiping God is great and I love much of what you write here.
    Thank you
