What a thing it is to sit absolutely alone, in the forest, at night,

cherished by this wonderful, unintelligible perfectly innocent speech,
the most comforting speech in the world, the talk that rain makes
by itself all over the ridges, and the talk of the watercourses
everywhere in the hollows! Nobody started it, nobody is going
to stop it. It will talk as long as it wants, this rain. As long as
it talks I am going to listen.
--Thomas Merton

Teach us to care and not to care
Teach us to sit still.
--T.S. Eliot

More wonderful, inspiring, tuning-fork, centering words
on gardening & sitting & working in gardens...
