Chief Seattle’s Web of Life Philosophy

Lake Union, Seattle WA - Chief Seattle Quote

Man does not weave this web of life. He is merely a strand of it. – Chief Seattle

I am learning, slowly, the wisdom of the chief. 

In quiet moments and serendipitous friendships.

I see the web and the stunning strands. 

All criss-crossing where hand meets hand.

I am just one strand. I can live in ease. 

There is no charge that I do it all. 

With my own strand, I will just be. 

In this moment. In this place. 

In this cycle. In this space.

That is enough for me.
