Gimme Just 10 Seconds

Nature is a balm. Stillness soothes. How about we all partake of these freely available gifts for just a moment?

Want more? Here’s another anxiety-reducer. I’ve given this one a tile on my phone.


This post is part of #MicroblogMondays? Whazzat? A post that’s not too long. Head to Stirrup Queens to join the fun.

Peace I Leave With You, My Friends

Especially in light of so many polarizing events in 2014, I’m featuring this little story, retold from my teacher, Ethel, who was, herself, retelling it.


Why Can’t There Be Peace on Earth?

A child asked at bedtime, “Mommy why is there war? Why can’t there be peace in the world?”

peace in the world

“Well, to have peace in the world, we need peace in our country.

“To have peace in our country, we must have peace in our city.

“To have peace in our city, we must have peace in our neighborhood.

“To have peace in our neighborhood we must have peace in our home.

“To have peace in our homes we must have peace in our hearts.

“My child, do you have peace in your heart? Are you always kind to your siblings? Friends? Acquaintances? Strangers? Enemies?

To have peace in the world we must cultivate peace within.”

peace begins hyper locally

I wish each of you dear readers — and myself — peace within.

And here’s my annual singing Christmas card

…delivered with a little help from my sisters.
