A faith of verbs

This is my living faith, an active faith, a faith of verbs: to question, explore, experiment, experience, walk, run, dance, play, eat, love, learn, dare, taste, touch, smell, listen, argue, speak, write, read, draw, provoke, emote, scream, sin, repent, cry, kneel, pray, bow, rise, stand, look, laugh, cajole, create, confront, confound, walk back, walk forward, circle, hide, and seek. To seek: to embrace the questions, be wary of answers.

~ Terry Tempest Williams

I love Terry Tempest Williams but read this beautiful passage for the first time on the beautiful blog First Sip.

    Love this.

    Yesterday Finley went from laughing at “a show my head let me watch” to trying to tap dance, to snow angels and snowman building. I think there is something in the unhindered joy sampling of littler people.
