"You can have the other words –- chance, luck, coincidence, serendipity. I’ll take grace. I don’t know what it is exactly, but I’ll take it." - Mary Oliver (Winter Hours)
"In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.'' - Siddhartha Guatama Buddha
Today, as Tilly and I climb through mist, and dawn breaks over Nattadon Hill, I am grateful for beauty. Attempting to live gently. And striving, always, for grace.
