It is light and bright. There was one scarf of fog across the valley and now it, too, is gone. It is as though I was given time to prepare to greet this full blast of light, this transition from gray to blue. The birds are singing and the leaves stretching. My intention is to cultivate and strengthen the stretch of time between thought and response, to notice more clearly the ways to dance and play.
If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
- Dalai Lama
