Special thanks to John Olander, one of our favorite featured artists, for sharing this wonderful song.  I love the guitar rift intro especially and Eric Bibb’s smooth jazz voice. Thank you dear Johnny O.

Special thanks also to Richard Keys Photo Sociology, for offering his beautiful photos to be used any time we like for our daily quotes.  You’ll be seeing some of Richard’s photos next week.  Thanks so much Richard!

In the meantime, if you know any homeless artists who would like their poems, photos or art featured on under1000skies as well as our accounts on TwitterPinterestInstagramG+ and through our email list, please pass on our information. Thank you!

Have a great weekend.

The theme for the month of May is “fear” and “love.”  The theme for June will be “silence,” “listening,” “stillness,” and “sacred space.”   If you have a favorite quote about any or all of those,, please let us know!

“I sit beside the fire and think
Of all that I have seen
Of meadow flowers and butterflies
In summers that have been

Of yellow leaves and gossamer
In autumns that there were
With morning mist and silver sun
And wind upon my hair

I sit beside the fire and think
Of how the world will be
When winter comes without a spring
That I shall ever see

For still there are so many things
That I have never seen
In every wood in every spring
There is a different green

I sit beside the fire and think
Of people long ago
And people that will see a world
That I shall never know

But all the while I sit and think
Of times there were before
I listen for returning feet
And voices at the door”
― J.R.R. Tolkien
