The sky clouded over and the huge gum trees swayed in the wind. The air was cool and the rain threatened to come. Winter, cold and grey but paving the way for newness, for Spring.
Time rushes by, the seasons change quickly these days, I wonder why that is, I wonder is it because I have slowed, I have decided that it is ok to take time for the quiet things, the slow and peaceful things. I have found that life rushes on regardless of what I do, whether I rush or slow, time itself continues on steadily. So I will slow myself, my mind, my breath, my heart. I want more time to enjoy the ones I love, the things I enjoy, the days and nights that will continue to come.
The true meaning of life is to plant trees,
under whose shade you do not expect to sit.
