This morning, traversing the gently winding pathways of a nearby park, feeling real earth under my feet instead of concrete, I was surprised at sudden tears in my eyes, a certain clenching of the heart. Eschewing the time it takes to walk to the park, for months I've stayed to the sidewalks of my neighborhood, never touching feet to earth.
How often do I give myself time to walk a little closer to Nature? Less and less. I've been so busy the past eight months with chores and More Important Priorities, that I've neglected my need to touch the Earth, one of my heart's deepest desires.
That changed, beginning today.
What heart's desire would you like to pursue today, and if you took some time for it, what might happen?
We make peace in a million small ways every day.
