The Dancing Breath of God

“I talk of branches dancing in the wind

but what I mean is the breath of God.”

Rumi

Feel the wind. Listen as it tiptoes past in a whisper, or waltzes with swaying branches, or twirls like an ice skater, scattering sparkles of frost in wild abandon. Watch. Listen. Feel the breath of God.  

Nurture peace, cultivate kindness, and carry the calm.

Mirth, Cheer, and Serenity

“Mirth is like a flash of lightning, that breaks through a gloom of clouds, and glitters for a moment; cheerfulness keeps up a kind of daylight in the mind, and fills it with steady and perpetual serenity.” – Joseph Addison

Wishing you mirth, cheer, and serenity in this season!

Nurture peace, cultivate kindness, and carry the calm.
