Peace Within Refreshing Us

20190915_155501

Within peace, our spirits grow still, and yet

stronger,

the quiet within

refreshing us.

When you leave comments on my site I always respond with peace.

I not only want our world to be a more beautiful place, but I offer peace to each person

as a way of blessing. It’s a hope really, in some ways a prayer. That internally

we all will have a sense of wholeness, and well being.

That’s what the word Shalom means, and I suspect it’s something similar with Salaam.

Peace everyone, may we all be at peace….within.

Solitude

20170628_135132

I may not get to the mountain top today,

or walk in the tall grass

but I can surround myself

with the woods, seeking light,

or walk by the lake,

pause on a rock watching

the ducks gently paddle,

as I close my eyes,

breathing deep.

Note: I like many of you, feel a need to have an inner quiet, a time to reassess and pull back.

I know I always work too hard, post too often. And everytime I say I’m taking a break, it doesn’t happen for long. It’s who I am I guess.

One way I have made time though, is by sharing from my archives. So I’ll do that for awhile, and post less often.

My priorities are to take care of my wife, and my own health.

I’ll also be spending even more time outside (yay!), learning more yoga, exercising, and reading.

I love reading paranormal spy thriller novels, and poetry. My favorite poets right now are Rupi Kaur and Courtney Peppernell.

Thank you for reading!
