Our roses are blooming and mingle now with our tulips, and other flowers that bloom in Spring. The graduation of our seniors is set for May 22 so I am really looking forward to my visits with my three seniors by zoom. We only have three weeks left, but I think that they will want to continue meeting, at least some weeks before they are off to college.
This quote from Annie Dillard's Teaching a Stone to Talk lends itself to further reflection. She says:
"The silence is all there is. It is the alpha and the omega, it is God's brooding over the face of the waters; it is the blinded note of the ten thousand things, the whine of wings. You take a step in the right direction to pray to this silence...."
God is found in silence and this year of the pandemic has found many discovering the gift of silence.
