Where Does the Sky Begin?

“[T]he sky actually begins at the earth . . .

We breathe it deep within us.”

– Diane Ackerman –

Take a breath of sky today!

Nurture peace, cultivate loving-kindness, and carry the calm.

In Nature’s Cathedral

“The blue sky is the temple’s arch,

Its transept earth and air,

The music of its starry march

The chorus of a prayer.”

– John Greenleaf Whittier –

 

Pause for a moment whenever you step outdoors this week. Look up and take in the cathedral of nature. Join the chorus of its prayer.

And as always, nourish peace, cultivate loving kindness, and carry the calm.
