WILLIAM CLEARY, whose written prayers give such beautiful clarity to the thoughts that surface in my own soul, says:

We know, Spirit Mystery, that something creative is happening in our lives all the time, something good going forward despite all we worry about …

He goes on to acknowledge that sometimes “worst fears” do come true, but speaks too of the “vast resources of artistry and invention” that turn our faces towards “some ultimate splendour”.

I think that the lady in the photo above is substantially more supple than I am these days, but with these thoughts in mind, and notwithstanding Bramhall’s rather greyer sky, today I shall try to remember that “something creative is happening” and – armed with all the colours of life’s rainbow – shall try to “fly”.
