Today is a quiet day. I’m working on an article that’s really important to me. I thought I had more time until deadline, but turns out I don’t. I think the Buddha said something like: The problem is, you think you have more time.
Oh yeah; I can relate. Many of us can, in many different ways.
I have a special friend on my mind today. Her mother was just moved into hospice care. She lost her dad only a short time ago. So my heart grieves doubly for her. We who’ve been through this know the pain and heartbreak of saying goodbye to a parent. When they’re both gone, it leaves us feeling orphaned or untethered. It’s a strange, new space to be in.
I walked today, much like every day. I observed the flora and fauna around me, much like every walk I take. But today, I paid closer attention to the little things. I needed to slow down and really observe the path. I needed to be in the moment, because that often slows down time for me. I needed to just be.
So in keeping with the quiet mood of the day, here’s a few photos sans my usual commentary. Let them be for you whatever they need to be. Simply observe. Have a peaceful evening, friends.
