Some days - it's silence I crave.
I wish for a respite from the noise and the constant stream of words. I seek out the empty space...the pauses between the busy moments...the transparent transitions.
I want- only - to hear my own breath...to feel my own heart beat.
I feel the need to connect to my body and its wisdom....to quiet my restless mind.
I think about the tree - whose roots run deep. I think about the moon and how it magically suspends itself just there. Like this. Like that. I think about the morning light...and the wash of soft unexpected colors.
I think about all that's so precious and so dear...and how easy it might have been for this moment to pass me right by. Without noticing.
And - I'm thankful for that silence that I've found.
