I often teach a guided meditation that takes you to your safe and peaceful place. It is always interesting to hear students share about their safe place. Sometimes it is a real place, sometimes a place in their dreams or a place they dream of going to. But it is important for all of us to have that place. A place where we can close our eyes, take a few breaths and be there when life is tough.
I have a couple of those places and one is here at our house. It is our living space on our back deck.
During the warm months, Rick and I sit and drink out coffee there or on the screen porch.
Sometimes we listen to music, but honestly, I love to sit and just listen to the birds. I watch the sky, the chickens and the dogs and for me, all is right with the world.
Sharing a picture of my place, with you all tonight.
