I am so grateful for the peace.
Everyone I know is so grateful for the peace.
Everyone I don’t even know, all over the world, is so grateful for the peace.
Spending time in the country without access to cell phone or internet has provided an opportunity to just appreciate quiet surroundings.
I have been busy and also not busy, just drinking in the layers of leaves with the contrast of bright red cardinals against the green.
I watch the line of the sun as it progresses down, and then back up, the treeline.
The bigger rhythms of earth have taken me over.
This is a reminder that there are bigger rhythms both in Earth and in the Universe.
We are just tiny particles going back and forth.
As I feel these larger rhythms, I breathe more deeply and I relax.
Whatever iIhave to do today fits into bigger rhythms, a bigger plan.
I am not just subject to the little forces that feel like they are pushing me one way and pulling me the next.
I am part of something much more gracious and forgiving and healing, the bigger rhythms of the Earth and of the Universe.
