hold

To a see a World in a grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wildflower
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in a hour.

~ Auguries of Innocence by William Blake
The World, the Earth, sleeps a little longer in our neck of the woods. Finding Heaven in a Wildflower might be a tall order as a result. However, finding it in other things might not be so difficult. A snowflake, the bare twig, the brown leaf poking through the snow. It might be a slow and easy day. Which isn't saying much for such a big card of culmination, completion, and wholeness.

There doesn't need to be a parade or fanfare coming to this simple, humble place. Being present is enough. Noticing is enough. Slow down. Allow yourself the pleasure of holding Infinity and Eternity for you have arrived and there is nothing more to do.
