These lines from a St. Thomas Aquinas poem keep singing through my mind and soul:
Our hearts irrigate this earth;
We are fields before each other.
The imagery is so exquisite, isn’t it? How sweetly vulnerable it is to be open and available to one another, our tenderest feelings enriching and nourishing the earth, our shared life — not just the place in which we stand ourselves, but the space we hold for each other.
I propose a “field day” — or maybe a field month, or a field forever. Let’s free ourselves to be together in deeper, more powerful, and beautifully creative ways.
This Saturday, December 3, at Albuquerque Center for Spiritual Living (abqcsl.org). Service at 6:00 pm, community & cheer at 5:30. See you there! XO, Drew
