from Something Great by M.Clark

During a very tender and intimate family wedding ceremony, in a town park in Charlestown, RI, Ron and Kim shared their wedding vows. What follows is the reading they used during their ceremony. They modified the piece from a paragraph in the book Something Great by M.Clark. Kim took poetic license to make the words more personal for the two of them.  Kim and Ron used these words as a reading in their ceremony. We think the essay  could also easily be the foundation for marriage vows.

“You are the one who lifts me up and never lets my feet touch the ground.
The one who loves me so much and puts me above everything else.
The one who will love me on the sunny days, but will love me most through the heavy, thunderous storms.
Who shelters me, romances me, loves me until you have given me your all.
In return, I promise to love you hard and give back to you all you have given me.”

Poem: The Peace of Wild Things Wendell Berry

On Thursday nights from March to December, Providence Rhode Island celebrates Gallery Night. Gallery Night is when local art galleries and museums are open free to the public.

One of the galleries featured recently was the alternative gallery space of AS220. www.as220.org , an artistic collaborative.

Steve Martin, a photographer, was one of the featured artists at the gallery.He began his artist statement with the poem: The Peace of Wild Things, by Wendell Berry. I am touched by the poem’s simple and gentle images of nature and the invitation to a quiet place to reflect and be.

The Peace of Wild Things.Wendell Berry

When despair grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting for their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

Portrait of a Lady- by Henry James

Good Morning couples in love, this small essay from Henry James speaks so dearly of a heart being transformed by love in a relationship. What more need be said on this wonderful morning.

“It has made me better loving you… it has made me wiser, and easier, and – I won’t pretend to deny – brighter and nicer and even stronger. I used to want a great many things before, and to be angry that I didn’t have them. Theoretically I was satisfied, as I once told you. I flattered myself I had limited my wants. But I was subject to irritation; I used to have morbid, sterile, hateful fits of hunger, of desire. Now I really am satisfied, because I can’t think of anything better.”

Einstein on Love

Matt and Stephanie are both engineers. They are scientists. They are totally immersed in their work and love each other tremendously. They share the following quote from Albert Einstein which they will be using during their upcoming wedding ceremony. We thought this a wonder and heart warming quote.

Gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in love.
How on earth can you explain,
in terms of chemistry and physics,
so important a biological phenomenon as first love?
Put your hand on a stove for a minute
and it seems like an hour.
Sit with that special girl for an hour and it seems like a minute.
That’s relativity.

~Albert Einstein

Relationships and Anne Morrow Lindbergh’s Gift From the Sea

This soft, and delicate reflection of Anne Morrow Lindbergh is a beautiful image of relationship. As you deepen, nourish and grow your own particular relationship ask yourselves: are we JOINING
 or are we SEPARATING or ISOLATING? Life is all about relationships. All of life is about relationships. Life is all about coming together joining and growing our hearts, and our lives. Our joining together involves so much: sensitivity, communication, commitment, care, respect, listening, regard, esteem, awareness, desire, presence, love, safety, vulnerability, intimacy, trust,healing, truth. The events of separation and isolation touch into our dark side of secrets, fear, anger, lies, hurt, wounds, power, control,  Questions we feel valuable to keep before us while in our relationship are: Where am I? Where are we? How am I/we willing to grow to join with my partner? What needs nurturing, and watering? What needs to diminish and weeded out? Joining is an ever-growing dynamic. And while these questions are natural and appropriate for our primary relationship, they are also valid questions to ponder while considering my relationships with my family members, my friends, my work and my the various communities to which I belong. As our world experiences so much hurt and so many wounds, we feel these questions are extremely valid  to ponder for national and global relationships: How am I/we joining? How am I/we separating? How am I/we isolating? How am I/we called to grow together? How do we grow and heal together?

Here is Anne Morrow Lindbergh’s reading

“A good relationship has a pattern like a dance and is built on some of the same rules. Partners do not need to hold on tightly, because they move confidently in the same pattern, intricate but gay and swift and free, like a country dance of Mozart. To touch heavily would be to arrest the pattern and freeze the movement, to check the endlessly changing beauty of its unfolding. There is no place here for the possessive clutch, the clinging arm, the heavy hand; only the barest touch in passing. Now arm in arm, now face to face, now back to back – it does not matter which. Because they know they are partners moving to the same rhythm, creating a pattern together, and being invisibly nourished by it.”

From Jane Eyre

We hope those of you in the north are having a great summer and in the south, a mild winter ah, what a world. This sharing, from Jane Eyre, is no other than wonderful! We are so grateful for having been able to hear this reading from Stephanie and Jim last weekend at their celebration of love. Went we first encountered this piece, it left us with a WOW!  We hope you enjoy this reading and your weekend.

 

I have for the first time found what I can truly love–I have found you. You are my sympathy–my better self–my good angel–I am bound to you with a strong attachment. I think you good, gifted, lovely: a fervent, a solemn passion is conceived in my heart; it leans to you, draws you to my centre and spring of life, wrap my existence about you–and, kindling in pure, powerful flame, fuses you and me in one.

~ Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Two Celtic Blessings

These two Celtic Blessings were read during the Memory Celebration of Life Ceremony and funeral of our very dear friend John Walsh. May he rest in peace.

Deep peace of the running wave to you!
Deep peace of the flowing air to you!
Deep peace of the silent stars to you!
Deep peace of the quiet Earth to you!
Deep peace of the God of peace to you!

###

May the raindrops
fall lightly on your brow.
May the soft wind
freshen your spirit.
May the sunshine
brighten your heart.
May the burdens of the day
rest lightly upon you
And may God enfold you
in the mantle of love.
