Almost Worship

by justine

But along with this pain, Adam brought with him a sweetness that surpasses anything I ever felt before he was conceived. It comes from looking at the heart of things, from stopping to smell not only the roses but the bushes as well.

It is a quality of attention to ordinary life that is so loving and intimate it is almost worship.
