The weather

Green hills and blooming flowers, puffy clouds in a blue sky. Maine in June.

Cold weather, grey sky and wet drizzle; it’s a good day to stay inside.

The weather lately has been real variable – one day it’ll be gorgeous blue skies and in the high 70s, the next day it’ll rain and be rather cold.  These two (above) haiku verses came to me during one dramatic weather change.

On Meditating

Still the body,

Clear the mind

and be at peace with all the universe.

We drove through some beautiful coastal forests yesterday and I put on my headsets to listen to some “new age” music that I love.  Even though I was looking around at the forest and keeping half an eye on the road I felt I was drifting into a meditative state and this one just popped into my mind.
