A lovely little book -


It is raining, and the sound is so strong, it feels very close, as though it is inside.  I got out Christmas wrapping paper and ribbons, and spread them all over the floor.  The kittens are gently exploring. 

I just read Pema Chodron's book, Practicing Peace in Times of War.   I highly recommend it.  It is a teeny-tiny thing and a wonderful gift.  It would fit inside most Christmas stockings, except for Tiger's and Bella's.   Here is a good definition of peace.   "Softening what is rigid in our hearts."    That means softening toward everyone and everything.  There is no divisiveness here, no choosing "good" or "bad," and that is a peaceful place.

Add it to your Christmas list.  Let's plant seeds of peace and ease.
