“Hello Darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again…”
P. Simon 1964 “The Sound of Silence”
I love the quiet darkness of winter. It brings a peaceful calm to my heart and mind. In the midst of a frenetic time of year, the darkness invites me to sit down, to slow down, to just be in this moment. When I embrace the quiet darkness, I am treated to wonderful surprises – the sharp contrasts of the shadows cast by a full moon, the fiery brilliant colors of the sunrise, a wonderful sensation of being connected to everything and everyone! My heart tingles with aliveness! I am grateful for the invitation to slow down and come home to me.
Thank you Winter Solstice!
What surprising invitation do you find in the quiet darkness?
