The ephemeral world

We have the capacity to be awake and to see the world as it is with a graciousness and an understanding.
As the poet Mary Oliver writes, “To live in this world, you must be able to do three things: to love what is mortal; to hold it against your bones knowing your own life depends on it; and, when the time comes to let it go, to let it go.”
This is our dance, our human incarnation: to tend and love that which is ephemeral
