the family of things

Whoever you are, no matter how lonely
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting --
over and over announcing your place in the family of things.

~ Wild Geese by Mary Oliver
It is, perhaps, a good day to be home with family. The work of the week has been done. There is food cooking on the stove. Maybe the fire is lit. Certainly, there is football on the TV. The people under the roof might all be in the same space or quietly sequestered in rooms. No matter, all will gather together later for dinner. For now there is this "place in the family of things."

The 10 of Water is a sweet harmony, a delicious gathering ~ of love, of resources, of place. And there's a happy, bittersweet togetherness that can't be replicated anywhere or anytime else. Flow and connectivity. Despite the hard times or spiky moments, there is still Family.


Be easy in your comfortable place. You've worked for it. Provisions have been made for you and yours, ancestors and descendants. Let your day be filled with a simple harmony.
