Musing -

I go out for a walk and realize this is my fifth day of not being in a car.  What a treat!   I see that many of my neighbors are already decorated for Christmas.   A few still have their Halloween scarecrows in place, but others have lights, reindeer and wreaths.

I walk down to the marsh, which is full and stagnant.  The water is not moving in or out.  I realize there is a difference between peace, stillness, and stagnant.  I recognize now that when I request and wish peace, I will visualize movement in the peace.  There is the Pacific, calm, and there is a need to move the old out and welcome the new.

I can't get to the bike path.  The tide is too high.  I think how it would be if it were raining, since the water already perches close to the top of the banks and, of course, is overflowing the bike path.

I walk back, past red holly and toyon berries.   It feels like Christmas now.  Thanksgiving has passed.

I am happy to see there are other walkers out and very few cars.  I guess many of us need to unwrap the holiday fat so joyfully wreathed around our middles.

Happy Peaceful Sunday, with movement and ease-filled breeze!   We need movement in and out, breath, change.
