anam cara

“If you send out goodness from yourself, or if you share that which is happy or good within you, it will all come back to you multiplied ten thousand times. In the kingdom of love there is no competition; there is no possessiveness or control. The more love you give away, the more love you will have.” —John O’Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom

“I Dwell in Possibility”

I dwell in Possibility –
A fairer House than Prose –
More numerous of Windows –
Superior – for Doors –

Of Chambers as the Cedars –
Impregnable of eye –
And for an everlasting Roof
The Gambrels of the Sky –

Of Visitors – the fairest –
For Occupation – This –
The spreading wide my narrow Hands
To gather Paradise –

By Emily Dickinson

A Distant Silent Company


“When I am drawing I feel a little closer to the ways birds navigate when flying, or to hares finding shelter if pursued, or to fish knowing where to spawn, or trees finding a way to the light, or bees constructing their cells. I’m aware of a distant silent company. Almost as distant as the stars. Company nevertheless. Not because we are in the same universe, but because we are involved –each according to his own mode- in a comparable manner of searching.”

~ John Berger, Bento’s Sketchbook
