Monday Morning Wake-Up Call

And if, as we work, we can transmit life into our work,

life, still more life, rushes into us to compensate, to be ready

and we ripple with life through the days.

D. H. Lawrence from “We are Transmitters” in The Complete Poems of D.H. Lawrence

    • btw; this AliveOnAllChannels is an amazing blog – I’ve never seen anything like that. Not that I know anything much about blogs, but this – on my infrequent or even very rare visits – astonishes me every time. I wish I had more time to dive fully into all that wisdom, beauty, to read all those short articles etc. Thanks Dave, for screening it for us.

      WP is espec ially annoying today, have already signed in THREE times and every time it doesn’’t acknowledge my sign-in…. Frustrating to say the least!!!!

  4. Feeling the effects of ‘springing forward’ this morning and will consider it a win if I can ripple through anything. 😳 But I do love the sentiment…

  6. D.H. knew how to write sensually about all topics. Work can be most sexy when we put our who being into it. To our ripples of life in all that we do!
