Love people even in their sin, for that is the semblance of Divine Love and is the highest love on earth. Love all of God's creation, the whole and every grain of sand of it. Love every leaf, every ray of God's light. Love the animals, love the plants, love everything. If you love everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better every day. And you will come at last to love the whole world with an all-embracing love.
--Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
This is my road that I get to drive up every time I go home now. I'm in love with the light through the maple boughs. Everything on the left of the road is our property.
Also, I'm reading this amazing book called Everything Belongs, by Richard Rohr, about contemplative prayer. It is one of those books that makes you look at everything differently. This Dostoyevsky quote is one of the chapter headings, and I thought it perfectly matched this photograph.
