Special Words and Thoughts

In part from a special young friend  "Aisling."
whose words I read this morning.

Life is a maze, full of twists and turns,
false starts and dead ends,
spiraling out away from the center of things
and I always want to be flowing in towards the heart....

Words go over and over in my mind this early morning.

A night that is usually not as comfortable as the day
and I sometimes have thoughts
of much.

But then this early morning with doors wide open,
dawn breaking, the view of mist,
the sound of geese overhead,
 the wonderful scent of the woods
and something blooming
I stand on the deck looking out into the woods
and in my heart
I know
I can never leave this place.

It is a dream come true
and the peace within is so deep
there are no words to share.

It is going to be a good day
and that is wished to all
who visit
my simple words....

Of course you will never leave there! And, when the time comes and you make your last journey--some of you will remain there, in the woods, always and forever!

Nighttime thoughts are so different than daytime thoughts.Problems in our stage of life are often exaggerated at night and then when we awaken...we find that things are not so bad.If we could just find a way to turn off those night time thoughts.One way I've found is to get up and have a small glass of milk and a cookie...then go back to bed and fall asleep again. Seldom have those thoughts then.
Daytime finds us busy and enjoying the world around us....

Very beautiful and thoughtful words to start my day. Heading off for a few day in Vermont, and I will take those thoughts along.
