In our house, we have a chalk board on which is written a prayer or affirmation for the season. With the coming of spring, my wife asked me to compose the new message and, having done so, I felt moved to share it with all of you as a way of marking Lady Day. May the best I could wish for my home be found also in each of yours!

“That the spring breeze should wend through windows
of the house, body, and soul, swelling each in inspiration
and emptying each in clarity;

“that this breeze should take force with the turning of the year
and become a mighty wind to bear us across seas;
we ask your blessing, Sai Vaya, in the rhythm of breath Divine.”
