the guest house.

this being human is a guest house.
every morning a new arrival.

a joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

welcome and entertain them all!
even if they're a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
he may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

the dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.

be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

"time you enjoy wasting was not wasted." john lennon

i have been on the hunt for an hourglass and was so amazed to find one at marshalls recently for $6! mine has white sand.

:pic from here:


pioneer woman has another photo contest going and this time it's editing
her brother-in-law's photo. i absolutely love this entry. i really need
to get Photoshop and Totally Rad and learn how to do all these cool edits.
