"Let the Beauty we love be what we do."

Lavender Calm

Today, like every other day, we wake up empty
and frightened. Don't open the door to the study
and begin reading. Take down a musical instrument.

Let the beauty we love be what we do.

There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.

-- Rumi


  1. Well, this is perfect since it is 4:30 in the morning. I woke up...tried...but didn't go back to sleep. Beautiful music!

  2. A wonderful thought for the day, and every day. It's so easy to dive frantically into each morning. How much better to start the day with a touch of joy. Thank you for this reminder.

    And I loved the lavender theme of today's post. Lovely images and music!

  3. Thank you Kathy! Yes, I started off my day looking at this just like Jenny above so early. It made me feel so much better! Thanks for your kind words. I hope that your day is as fragrant and lovely as the lavender and as breathtakingly beautiful as Joshua Bell's violin music!

  4. Jenny dear, I hope you got some sleep! I am glad my post was comforting to you.
