Simple places…

3 11 2013

(The non-profit for which I work, Well for the Journey, went on a pilgrimage to Gettysburg this past Friday…just some thoughts and photos from a pilgrims journey).

May we be mindful of the simple things in our living:

leaves blowing in wind and colors given . . .

the symmetry of life and the chaos that arises within what is balanced;

vistas that take our breath and breath that sustains the simple . . .

ordinary places and hallowed ground spaces . . .

like this nook where I sit now,

letting reflection and contemplation have their way . . .

I’ve been to Gettysburg but it’s been so long ago, thanks for bringing back memories.

Gettysburg is only an hour and a half from my home so I drive up occasionally. It is a special place. Thanks for stopping by.

I was there as a kid, but you are exactly right, will never forget it.
