With a little overlap of the recent mosaic, here's a new gathering. I love the way these all work together. A tad pre-emptive with the galanthus ~ my haste is born of adoration. I have several snowdrop pics on the wall behind my laptop desk, year-round; one was from a cover of a Cygnus Review - with a quote from Marion Leigh, 'Findhorn Flower Essences': "The essence of Snowdrop allows us to access deep inner stillness and to surrender to the processes whereby we can release the past."

David Whyte has written a lovely tribute to John O'Donohue, who passed away on January 3rd. John's words often touched, moved, rocked, me. As they did for an 'enormous circle'. I was saddened to hear, from Caroline Myss on her HayHouse radio show on Tuesday, of his death, and deeply grateful that he wrote as fully and richly as he did, while he was here.
Here are three snippets from his 'Eternal Echoes ~ Exploring Our Hunger To Belong" :
"We live on an unseen threshold."
"Charisma reminds us that there is no system or frame large enough to hold the secret immensity that is in each one of us."
"As we journey onwards in life, increasingly spaces within us fill with absence. We begin to have more and more friends among the dead."
