Etchings in the Sand…

Thoughts and Photos from the Desert…

Wind in the Pine Trees…

“No writing on the solitary,
meditative dimensions of life can say anything that has not already
been said better by the wind in the pine trees.”

~Thomas Merton, from the preface to the 1966 edition of Thoughts in Solitude.

(I jotted this down recently as something wonderful – something I wanted to share with you. I forgot to make note of where I found it, but it sounds a lot like Beth, Merton scholar and thoughtful friend.)
