Geese appear high over us,
pass, and the sky closes. Abandon,
as in love or sleep, holds
them to their way, clear
in the ancient faith: what we need
is here. And we pray, not
for new earth or heaven, but to be
quiet in heart, and in eye,
clear. What we need is here. 

~Wendell Berry

As we continue planning for what we want for our personal lives, for our communities, and our planet it is easy to look outside of us as if all we want is out of reach and out of our control.  This gentle reminder bring us back home to look more closely at our own capacity to create change.
