Magical Mundane - East Missoula, Montana

"Listen to your life. 
See it for the fathomless mystery it is. 
In the boredom and pain of it, 
no less than in the excitement 
and gladness: touch, taste, 
smell your way 
to the holy and hidden heart of it, 
because in the last analysis 
all moments are key moments, 
and life itself is grace.”

(P.S. As promised: Saturday's what-is-it photo is of a big Blender; in environmental remediation, it might be used with a Delmag Drill in the ground to mix grout and contaminated dirt to stabilize. Like a giant milkshake mixer.  Kind of. Not quite as fanciful as other imaginings, but still very big and fascinating.)


  1. thank-you for the answer. That would be quite the machine to watch!

    LOVE how today's photo remind us that God's masterpieces are mountain and sky majestic or as ground-level as sun-through-little-leaf-on-the-grass.

    For You, O LORD, have made me glad by what You have done, I will sing for joy at the works of Your hands. Ps.92:4

  2. The majesty and the mystery!
    What a fitting verse - I never read that one as referring to His seemingly mundane as well as magnificent makings in our lives.
    Thank you!
