Quote of the Day

Love alone is capable of uniting living beings in such a way as to complete and fulfill them, for it alone takes them and joins them by what is deepest in themselves.
--Teilhard de Chardin

At lights out, last night, the house was warm in spite of the driving and frigid east wind. In the living room, our fur children were all soundly sleeping -- Maclovio, the Chihuahua, had burrowed into the cushions of David's chair; Panda, his black and white cat brother, was tightly coiled in Maclovio's dog bed; and Sophia, our independent and aloof cat crone, was wrapped around the electric heater. I've always felt that the emotional state of one's animals indicates the emotional health of one's home. In which case, peace reigns over all, here on our mountain, and love abides. As we enter this season of holy days, we are blessed by love and peace, and this is a blessing we extend to you all. May your days be steeped in warmth and loving kindness, and your nights be cozy, and may you rest deeply in the awareness that you are loved.
