All is calm, all is bright

I woke up this morning craving blue: calm, stillness, reflection...

So, on the off chance that you -- in the midst of holiday preparations and craziness, surrounded by flashing reds and greens -- may also be craving blue,
I offer you this soothing image.

I invite you to step into it -- not to drown, but simply to sink down, to float, and release; to feel the depths of your soul rocking gently in the waves, to let that ribbon of light reach deep into your heart; to let it reflect and resonate there. 

Feel the lightness of the mountain lifting the tension in your brow; feel the groundedness of that dark horizon softening and opening across your shoulders and your chest.  Know the permanence of mountain, sky and sea; feel the brief tempest as the boat full of activities stirs the waters, then passes on...

Breathe in the blue, and rest.

Breathe in.

Slow.

Breathe.

Peace, my friends.

Peace.

thank you my friend.

This is exactly what I needed this morning -- and whenever I feel the need over the next couple of days, I shall come here to restore myself.

Lovely!
