Ephemera

So beautiful. Early morning sun sparkling on the countless spider webs stranding across the graceful parsley umbrels. The seeds are maturing and already the replacement plants are beginning to sprout in our herb garden.

Taking in a deep breath I can smell the moisture, the parsley, the thyme, and the sun-warmed linen. The birds are calling, somewhere a lawn mower is meditating. Later summer, perhaps.

Lately everything seems there yesterday, gone today. For the moment, there was a silence, a stillness. The whole world catching a breath, taking a moment. And then the curtain ever-so-slowly, gently, drawn out by a restless breeze.

I breathed out.

Manifesto
02. Every day is an opportunity for a new beginning.
05. Every day is now. The present moment.
48. Every day there are things you can’t change. You can change the way you think about them and deal with them.

    Refreshing. Linny – I could see a whole book with pics and writing just like this. Almost a portable meditation primer. A book for people in cubicles who could read one a day and escape for a moment. It could also be a one a day meditation/day planner. Just thinking…again.

    Thanks, Trev – there are so many things – the commonplace, everyday things – that are so beautiful, if we take out just a moment to rest, and absorb their splendor. Just taking a moment… again.
