My mind right now is like a blank canvas…Perhaps I can color it with thoughts of beautiful things…like the unfolding of a butterfly’s wings after she emerges from her cocoon. Lately, I have not felt much like going to places where there is so much noise that I cannot focus on my own thoughts…I have found solace in nature, and peace of mind. It has been my place of refuge, the trees sheltering me and giving me a sweet and soft breeze. I am home in the places where birds chirp and the webs of spiders glisten in the sunshine. Nature is so nurturing…tapping me softly on the shoulders and giving me new visions. In the stillness, I am at peace.
