"Your stillness is a form of listening. Be still until you feel the largeness of what carries you…

Like it or not, to be in conversation with the Earth is to be worn open by the world. We cannot escape the weight of the world, but must move through it. We cannot bypass our seeding in the dark, if we are to blossom in the light. And we cannot avoid the tangle of the living…

The ethic of wonder is how we listen to the Earth: waiting for the gift until things that matter repeat themselves through our love, until we kiss the hollowed things put in our way. All this leads us to our song.”

-Mark Nepo
