Today is the birthday of St. John of the Cross (1542). 

He is the patron saint of mystics, contemplatives and Spanish poets. 

He is probably best known for his poem, Dark Night of the Soul.

“A man will be eloquent if you give him good wine.”

"Featherheart"
was chosen as
the name for
this blog
because when
I remember
to keep my
heart light as
a feather,
life is much
easier.
