grace

 

A few moments of silence produces a single-pointed focus.

Echo

Like a loon, the dove’s cry echos across the water, and peace settles in for the day.

Renewal

The freshness of a simple morning can make all the chaos and bewilderment recede. I am renewed each day.

Light

I am preparing to drive over to the coast today so I am busy gathering all the things we need and making a list for the market. I had to check the newly planted seedlings in the herb garden to make sure they weren’t wilting in the sunshine, and I come upon this exquisite perfection. It’s a tree peony and just gorgeous. The rest of my chores had to wait while I gave her her due.

Remember to pay attention and be here now.

new

as the wheel of the year turns, everything is new again….first meal on the porch, and I can see the perfection of my world…

and so…
