I like writing about where I am,I first read those lines several years ago. Since then, I often begin my letters and journal entries with a description of where I am. At this moment I am sitting in a not-too-comfortable chair in front of the computer. Where I've been? Now, that's a better story. Thanks to a husband who always knows just what I need, I had a quiet moment to myself today. This is it.
where I happen to be sitting,
the humidity or the clouds,
the scene outside the window -
a pink tree in bloom,
a neighbor walking his small, nervous dog.
And if I am drinking
a cup of tea at the time
or a small glass of whiskey,
I will find a line to put it on.
~ from In the Room of a Thousand Milesby Billy Collins
Best view of all.
May the coming week bring you moments of quiet contentment, perfect peace, and true joy - just when you need them. Sursum corda.
