kneeling

spending the morning of a day off with a big mug of coffee at a cafe tucked away from the rush of suburbia - trains chugging through, butterflies flitting across sun-streaked roads, people chatting without hurry. deep breaths.

the redbud and forsythia bursting into bloom along every roadside. spring!

Rumi, and Kris Delmhorst's interpretation in song:

"Today, like every other day, we wake up empty

Let the beauty of what we love be what we do.
There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground."
