Ordinary

Always, after stormy and unsettling times, the peace of everyday life is a balm for the soul. Wrapped in a blanket I watch the day begin anew.

Ordinary Day

The blessings of an ordinary day: errands, ironing, petting my dog. Today I look forward to a day filled with puttering, reading and tidying up, and I feel privileged to have it so. I’ll put off worry, planning and disagreement to another time.

Dark

It is my favorite time of day. The cool dark of 5:30 AM is quiet and softly peaceful, and best of all I am alone. Shifting my attention back from daily kidney antics to my creativity, reading and personal growth reminds me that life is always changing, and the quiet is perfect for observing it.
