Today..."Quiet as a Feather!"
It's been a crazy week. Actually it's been a crazy month, two months, two years? I'm weary, sad and need a break. I am betting that I am not the only one. This is what I am feeling today! Need a break, need some peace, need some quiet!! "Quiet as a feather!" Sending vibes of peace out to the world this morning.
"Today I’m flying low and I’m not saying a word I’m letting all the voodoos of ambition sleep.
The world goes on as it must, the bees in the garden rumbling a little, the fish leaping, the gnats getting eaten. And so forth.
But I’m taking the day off. Quiet as a feather. I hardly move though really I’m traveling a terrific distance.
Stillness. One of the doors into the temple."
