how an oak tree grows: a zen parable about awakening

4 Nov 2015 spirit + soul

hello, dear friends. it’s wednesday evening, and it’s already been pitch black dark for about 4 and a half hours. i’m snuggled under the blanket, curled up in the corner of the sofa. my love is putting a puzzle together on the floor, and we’re both trying to keep up with the current episode of “homeland” on our netflix screen. cozy, huh? we think so. hehe. anyway, i haven’t been blogging much this week. i’ve got lots on my mind.Read More
