Between the crackling calls of the crows
Between the sweet swishes of the wind
Between the questions questions questions
Between then and now
Between now and whatever will come
Between the body and the pulse
Between the open hands
Between all the names of mystery
Between the silence and the silence
Still deeper the silence
And the call
The month of November is an easy time to remember gratitude as our month of thanks is celebrated with our festival of appreciation on the fourth Thursday of the month in tradition. It can easily be the best holiday of the year because it demands little and gives us much in remembering the value of gratitude.
When we walk the labyrinth this month, we have the opportunity to appreciate each day a little more if we remember what is vital, what is happening and what has occurred during this interval of time. Just asking what am I grateful for, how am I grateful and who might be grateful for me can move the mountains of heart in the world, especially touching the magnitude of our own being.
Feel the change of the seasons and the change in your countenance this month by enveloping a week of thanks, then a week of appreciation, follow with a week of gratitude and finally a week of great fullness for all.
Enjoy the bliss of giving thanks.
