The desert appears simply dry and plain on the surface, but it is teeming with life underground, in hidden crooks, in rock puddles, in the sky. We have to pay attention on a small scale to see it. A good metaphor for all of life.
Beautiful! It invites and evokes our attentiveness.
Have only traveled Midbar in the Wellsprings, but I am hooked I now have a place to go to just be and connect, to untangle. I am going to send this to some of my Christian friends.
I’m so glad that you are enjoying it. Would love it if you can share some of your own Midbar stories here. It’s wonderful that you plan to share with friends of different faiths. They are welcome here.
