I was getting ready to sew last night and turned off the t.v. Usually I have it on or I listen to a book on tape or some music. I felt like I needed some quiet to relax and clear my mind. It was once the room was silent that I noticed it. Spring!
I live on a pond teaming with wildlife. Spring brings back the Canada Goose flocks and croaking frogs from the bottom of the pond. Mallards, Egrets, and a Blue Heron gather near the edge of the water. The warm air blows in my windows. I am reminded of the peace and tranquility spring can bring. So I had to stop, close my eyes, listen, and breath. Nature's movement brings stillness. Peace.
