PAD: Day 7 – Simmer down

Breathe

There are a million stars in Texas
and the air is big.

You have known sorrow.
Fear was your friend.

But here on the threshold
you can breathe again,
even if it’s been a while.

In the Hill Country of Texas is a retreat center called Laity Lodge when I spent 4 days last February at the Rabbit Room retreat. A short walk from the meeting space is an art installation called Threshold. If you go there at night, you can see all the stars.
