What Benefit

It doesn’t matter how many spiritual
books you read if you don’t practice
what you teach, what benefit is there
in not acting on holy words?

Waving in the Wind

Pine-Trees-In-The-Snow-540x960[1]

I noticed yesterday the first conspicuous silvery sheen from
the needles of the white pine waving in the wind. A small one
was conspicuous by the side of the road more than a quarter
mile ahead. I suspect that those plumes which have been oppressed
or contracted by snow and ice are not only dried but opened
and spread by the wind.
