Default TODAY'S GIFT - DECEMBER 2014

You are reading from the book Today's Gift


Go rich in poverty. Go rich in poetry.
óMay Sarton

Poetry lets us put the beauty of nature - the clouds, the flowers, and the waterfall - into words. Poetry lets us see that things, which appear to be opposites, may just be different ways of looking at the same thing. How can we be rich in poverty? Wealth in poverty means finding pleasure in simplicity, finding the core of what's important, and saying it in the fewest possible words.

We are so often caught up in the pursuit of more - more money, more toys, more prestige that we forget how satisfying the simple things can be. Think of the beauty of a sunset or a walk by the river, the fun of playing in a sandbox or swinging on the swings in the park, or in simply taking time to get something done the right way, without hurry.

What riches lie around me right this moment?
For me, the gift of music. Christmas music is playing.
