Good morning,

Today’s meditation is a piece I’ve been working on in C major — it’s become an elegy of sorts for a family member who passed away last year.

The photo was taken with a disposable camera on the Washington State ferry from Bainbridge Island to Seattle, somewhere near the border between summer and fall.

I invite you to sit with this photo and song and, if you can, make them a small part of your morning. If you feel like it, let me know what you think in the comments.

Thank you for being here.


"If I had another life
I would want to spend it all on some unstinting happiness.
I would be a fox, or a tree
full of waving branches.
I wouldn't mind being a rose
in a field full of roses.
Fear has not occurred to them, nor ambition.
Reason they have not yet thought of.
Neither do they ask how long they must be roses, and then what.
Or any other foolish question."

- Mary Oliver, from ‘Roses, Late Summer’ (1990)
