Small Stone for Jan. 7, 2014

badge-14-300x300Today A Year with Rilke’s entry is called The Vastness of Connection. Rilke questions what his part  might be in the connection to the stars.  (At least, that is my interpretation of his writing today.)

This fits with some of my own questions right now, and so my small stone ponders connection too.

To stand outside myself
a moment to consider
the vastness of the universe
how small my presence in it

how am I connected
to the world around me

how am I connected
to the stars?
