Today, I walked in a rose garden
Today, I felt the sun on my back
Today, I felt the breeze on my face
Today, I watched a spider spin his web
Today, I discovered I don't really like peanut butter rolls
Today, I saw new buds on all the trees
and we are only into day 4 of Winter
Today, I smelt the last of the roses
Today, I sat and walked with six others and
Today, I listened to the silence
Today, I went on a mindfulness retreat
Not merely an absence of noise, Real Silence begins when a reasonable being withdraws from the noise in order to find peace and order in his inner sanctuary
True silence is the rest of the mind; it is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment.
My beautiful and loving friends
said I would be expelled before we hit 10 a.m.!
Bless them, I loved every minute
