Passions Part 2

"I know that feeling. That feeling that even the dirtiest, meanest task performed in the place you love, the place you belong, is like an embrace. Just to be where you know you are the perfect fit, is a harmony matched only by the most exquisite, exalted music. Anything you touch there is sacred; anything you do, a masterpiece."

So. If my sanctuary is not in the kitchen, where is it?

Outdoors. Pretty much anywhere not constricted by four walls and snuffed by a ceiling, not supplied with mechanical air.

The sun. The breeze. The rain. The moon and stars. Earth. Sand. Water. Snow. Trees in all their seasonal finery. Flowers, grasses, brambles and bracken. Animals, from the tiniest beetle to the greatest whale.

And my personal altar in that boundless sanctuary—my garden.

The kiss of the sun for pardon,

The song of the birds for mirth,

One is nearer God's heart in a garden

Than anywhere else on earth.

A Quiz Borrowed From Cynthia

I found this quiz at "Sorting the Pieces."

I find the results fascinating.... I have to admit,

some of the questions baffled me a bit.

Maybe that's where the 19% fundamentalist part came from(!) :D

Some people I know will not be too surprised

about the "still feels as if there is something

greater than ourselves" part...

You scored as Cultural Creative, Cultural Creatives are probably

the newest group to enter this realm. You are a modern thinker who tends

to shy away from organized religion but still feels as if there is something

greater than ourselves. You are very spiritual, even if you are not religious.

Life has a meaning outside of the rational.
