A quiet space

This is the backdrop to my house.

I'm very lucky...and I don't just mean in the sense of the vista but also the quietude that envelopes me on the days when the traffic (which is about 2 miles away as the crow flies) isn't on high alert.

Being present to this lifts my spirits, connects me with the earth and makes me fully alive.

Sometimes, though, I have to remind myself in a purposeful, almost contrived way to stop, to look and to feel each breath come into and leave my body. If I don't, and especially with Alfie pulling me on, there's a temptation to yomp my way round my morning and early afternoon walks.

That said, I need to wait longer: to contemplate the unfolding universe which is all around me and of which I'm part. Highfalutin I know but that's how it feels. A deep, deep connection with everything of which I'm part.

And you?

Do you have a way to bring yourself into the present moment and leave behind the vicissitudes of these Covid19 times?

I'd love to know.

Anyhow, have a wonderful day.

Much love, Ju.
