An Act of Deep Relation


Out of bed in the early dark.

The coffee grinder breaks the silence and begins the day.

She lights the candle, a green one, and moves her attention into the flame.

Washing your hair can be an invocation.

Selecting your scarf can be a prayer.

Packing your lunch can be a spell.

Driving to work along the river can be an act of deep relation.
