Daily Life

Life must provide a space of liberty, of silence, in which possibilities are allowed to surface and new choices become manifest. Thomas Merton

What I wear is pants. What I do is live. How I pray is breathe. Thomas Merton

Waking each morning, ex-
pelled from my space,

else has taken my place!

So rising to join in the common fray
compelled through the breathless, common day;

I stop,

and I choose,

and I breathe,

and I pray.
