“the closest to being in control we will ever be is in that moment that we realize we're not.”
brian kessler

"life is filled with so many exciting twists and turns.
 hop off the straight and narrow whenever 
you can and take the winding paths.
 experience the exhilaration of the view from the edge. 
because the moments spent there,
 that take your breath away,
 are what make you feel truly alive."
~stacey charter

one moment 
in time
where it all seemingly
stood still.
their moments had all led to this one.
yesterday at the breslin center in lansing.
congratulation to the morely stanwood lady mohawks
and coach bob raven. 

i have looked.
at this rock.
i have thought.
it would be perfect.
for this.
when i was still in this house.
as a young girl.
i don't remember my age.
mom and i went and dug up ferns.
and planted them here.
as a grown girl.
living in this house.
i love to watch.
these ferns spring up.
with their fuzzy little heads.
that look like aliens.
they will grow around.
this stone.
with my mantra.
this has been a wonderful.
moment weekend.
i hope for you as well.
welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday morning.
just BE.

A mantra stone...

I guess I have one or two of those as well, although I haven't actually written anything on them.

But my stones are as precious to me as yours is to you.

There's just something inviting and enduring about a stone...
