A Piece of My Day

A Piece of Tuesday, 14 September 2010…

Posted on: Tuesday, 14 September 2010


And so, I wait…

I’m picking up a friend but I arrived early, so I’m sitting in my car, with the windows down and some peaceful classical music on the radio. As I sit, I am surrounded by many other sounds, in spite of the serenity of this immediate area…

I hear traffic on a not-very-distant highway. A weed eater. A truck backing up (beep, beep, beep!). A plane just flew overhead, and a car just drove past.

But intermingled with all these sounds are the lovely sounds of nature – most notably, several different types of birds are serenading me. I find such simple beauty in their songs. I know they are complex methods of communication, of course, but their chirps and tweets have a simplicity, too, which I find refreshing.

What simple things are in your life today, calling you to be mindful of their beauty?

Peace be upon your day!
