“I pray to the birds because they remind me of what I love rather than what I fear. And at the end of my prayers, they teach me how to listen.”  - Terry Tempest Williams

"By the time I arrive at evening, / they have just settled down to rest; / already invisible, they are turning / into the dreamwork of the trees...."   - Lisel Mueller

Art above: three hand-painted photographs from the "Small Deaths" series by Kate Breakey (via Tatiana Yatskievych). The series is beautiful though dark...as befits this week, on the cusp of Samhain and the Days of the Dead.
