Contemplating the Unfathomable

When you contemplate the unfathomable depth of space or listen to the silence in the early hours just before sunrise, something within you resonates with it, as if in recognition. You then sense the vast depth of space as your own depth, and you know that precious stillness (that has no form) to be more deeply who you are than any of the things that make up the content of your life.
-- Eckhart Tolle, Oneness With All Life

It's late, and other than the brief time in the parking lot outside the Barnes and Noble in Bellingham (when I was able to load in yesterday's blog), I haven't had internet access all day. But I've been thinking of you, thinking of the beauties I saw this weekend (this is the Wallace River, seen from the trail to Wallace Falls) and I knew when I read this quote this morning that I wanted to share it with you.

I'm home now, and should be back in full form tomorrow; I have lots to share!

Extraordinary image. It almost looks like the eye of a hurricane. And it's complemented perfectly by the quote from Tolle.
