Getting the kids to bed in the summer months gives me the opportunity to witness many sunsets. When I was a little girl I was fascinated with the way the sky would turn into a parfait of color. This still calms me, and brings to mind the word that's been on my mind lately...grace. Everywhere I look, the word appears. Everywhere I look, grace appears. The day ends and we rest before another begins...we get this chance every day. There it is, grace.

Under Construction!

Apologies if this blog is looking weird, especially on your mobile device. I am working on it!

Calm down, calm down

Sitting with a 5 year-old who really does not want to sleep at 9:58 PM is an exercise in...something. Patience, maybe, futility, most definitely. We have watched the sun set, we have discussed many a question such as "why does Santa wear red?" and "what animals have eyelids?" and other brilliant inquiries that seem to flood his little mind at bedtime. I remind him to take a deep breath, to let his body relax, be calm...but the energy of an almost-Kindergartener is bigger than any of my tactics. Eventually there is space between the questions and for the first time all day, actual silence. This is my meditation. My little Buddha is asleep.
