Forest Meditations

20170628_151344

As I entered the trail, lingering March winds pushed the canopy of tree tops one way and the other,

all at the same time, yet I was quickly surrounded by the gentleness of the forest,

a safe place deep in the coolness of the earth.

The wildflowers were blue this time, while the vanity of the woodpecker could be heard

in the distance. And I wondered how far a prayer could travel, certainly beyond the poplar and oak trees…

I understood then, how peace walked this earth, from the very beginning.

“Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life, as by the obstacles which he has overcome.” 

Booker T. Washington

Wishing you great success today as you overcome obstacles, inspiring others with your courage!

May your sails be filled with power and beauty!
