Welcome You Back

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013 2

“Be taught now, among the trees and rocks,
how the discarded is woven into shelter,
learn the way things hidden and unspoken
slowly proclaim their voice in the world.
Find that far inward symmetry
to all outward appearances, apprentice
yourself to yourself, begin to welcome back
all you sent away, be a new annunciation,
make yourself a door through which
to be hospitable, even to the stranger in you.”
— Excerpt from “Coleman’s Bed” in River Flow by David Whyte

  1. I love David Whyte — and you! “Apprentice yourself to yourself” is a fabulous thought.
