We’ve survived a scorching summer. The trees are turning and the days cooler. A reading from Worldwords by Victor La Cerva gave me pause this morning to look out the window and notice the look of fall creeping in, the sky, the wind blowing from the southwest.
“We normally reserve applause for human endeavors. What if we slowly began an underground custom of wild clapping for a sunset, a moonrise or a rainbow? Cloud formations might spontaneously generate huge crows of cheering children. Stadiums would fill to listen to the latest songs of popular birds and the wail of crickets in the night…as people everywhere bestowed richly deserved appreciation for the gifts showered upon them each day by nature…If we could slow down long enough to really let it all in, we might discover that we already have everything we need to feel satisfied.”
And so, because of the gift of remembering after reading the above, I’m sending peace for your day and the wind at your back.
