Seeking to live in awareness

I've been away so long you might think I've fallen into Alice's rabbit hole. Unable to multi task, I've had to devote most of my time to working on The Glass Chrysalis. I hope this brief blog will renew my efforts to find room for God.

I read the following this morning and it moved me—presenting such a lovely synthesis  of what it means to live in awareness. God has given us he power to see with "such intense clarity." We have only to take the time to really look.


“Tree scrutiny . . . I stand apart and look; looking I respect almost to the point of love. But what I hope to be loving is God; not because he ‘made’ the tree, but because he gives me the power to see it with such intensity and clarity.”  -- Philip Toynbee “Part of a Journey”
