yesterday, I took myself out for lunch. THE book tucked under my arm, a pen and a note pad.. I ordered pumpkin soup [no salt please] and a chai latte on soy and I sat. by myself. and read... and as I read, I saw images in my mind that I knew i must journal.
after lunch.. I hurried home to get the images down onto paper..
I could say that actually sitting down and creating my journal pages was full of JOY too.. it was.
pray. breathe slowly.
be in the present moment.
I am silent
and surely all of that is JOY?
...to the soul, the most minute details and the most ordinary activities, carried out with mindfullness and art, have an effect far beyond their apparent insignificance.
Quote from CARE OF THE SOUL...Thomas Moore
