Peace -

It is the time of year when we speak and sing of "peace on earth".   I read these words of Emerson, "Nothing can bring you peace but yourself."

I sink into myself this time of year and that allows an opening and expansion into connection with trees, birds, and squirrels. I see that as the trees lose their leaves, their branches define lines and space.  I can see the words I type here as well as the space between.  I lengthen, strengthen, and widen inside.  Breath is a kite connecting in and out.  I am grateful for lungs and heart, for blood and pumps. I am grateful for life and the ability and grace to transform.  Today I embrace life and death as one.

I am reading a wonderful book, yes, another one, Reconnecting with Nature by Michael J. Cohen.  If you want to open more awareness of, and more connection with your 53 natural senses, I recommend this book.

The Winter solstice comes.  I feel the caress of light, the mobilization that excites, the calming acceptance, of change.
