Early winter means February in my corner of the US, and while we’re looking at a mid-week heat wave of 40 degrees here in the Midwest, I feel for our people in the South and Southeast. They’re dealing with unfamiliar snow and cold, burst pipes with no one available to fix them for weeks; and with little access to water, they can still melt snow in their outdoor grills to meet daily needs, but wow!
But the prompt for this week is kaleidoscope, isn’t it?
So let’s do a mindful meditation together, eyes closed and imaginations open; may we find comfort in our inner worlds.
Mine is to lie in a patch of early October sunlight on slightly damp earth, in jeans and light jacket as leaves kaleidoscope in slight cross-winds from multicolored deciduous that spread themselves over fading lawns, and blanket me in their silky-belled crispness, with a light, timeless tap tap-tap on my body and around my smile-curved cheeks.
Now it’s your turn, friends.
