lake-3

The water swishes back and forth methodically.  The ebb and flow, the inhale and exhale, the sound slowing my heartbeat and bringing me to present.  My feet slightly sinking in the damp sand and mud.  Footprints of geese surround me as the large birds take flight over me.  Their songs keeping the commune together.  The ancient cottonwoods with their bare limbs connect sky with earth and world slows.  The sun gently cascades towards the west beginning the end of another day.  The sound of the water lulls me into peace.

This lake is at the end of our block.  Find a place near you, a park, a lake, a mountainside, a swath of open prairie, anywhere that holds the sounds and peace of nature and take it in as medicine for your journey.
