"how long does it take to hum a hymn? strolling one or two acres of the sweetness of the world, not counting a lapse, now and again, of sheer emptiness. once a deer stood quietly at my side. and sometimes the wind has touched my cheek like a spirit. am i lonely? the beautiful, striped sparrow, serenely, on the tallest weed in his kingdom, also sings without words.~Mary Oliver
