Joyfully Embodied


From today's Hours:

I shall establish my dwelling place among you
and shall not reject you;
-I shall walk among you;
I shall be your God and you shall be my people.

You are the temple of the living God,
as God himself has said.
- I shall walk among you;
I shall be your God and you shall be my people.

Leviticus 26:11-12; 2 Corinthians 6:16

Ah yes, even as I struggle to understand the glory of the body, I am surrounded by little beings who live that glory every day. There's nothing like cold fountains on a hot summer day to bring out the sheer joy of embodiment.

Lovely and true, Adele. Joy is so much a part of the freedom to move and play and enjoy/find delight in the elements -- but water particularly so.
