Gazing at the Stars

Taking a few moments to gaze at the stars or watch a meteor shower reminds us how vast the universe is and how insignificant life’s little problems are in the vast scheme of things. It also reminds us that though we may feel different or alone there are others who are gazing at the same sky and feeling the same feelings we ourselves are experiencing. Remembering life’s little pleasures and taking time to enjoy them provides balance, variety and joy in our lives.

The Music of Nature

Sitting outside on a summer’s evening or walking the woods on a crisp fall day. Too often we find ourselves lost in thought and don’t take the time to silence our mind and really listen to the music of nature. The humming of a bee or the whisper of the wind, helps remind us that the world is filled with beauty, harmonies and melodies.
