Your Peace

Winter isn’t over. But it’s the first sunny day above fifty degrees and it feels great. The snow is melting, the birds are calling and it is the perfect day to open windows and take a walk at last.  My cat is sunning himself on the couch, purring very loudly, yet completely at peace. His biggest worry is an occasional dog chasing where both dogs double team him, but that is of no consequence right now. His whiskers twitch rhythmically in time with his loud purrs. He rolls onto his back to warm his belly in the sun. All four paws in the air and he is at peace. It seems so easy. And it should be, but that isn’t always the case. Where is peace in a busy, connected world? Do you have a spot in the sun or a bright spot in your world?

  1. For three days, I got outdoors and took nice long walks. The sun felt friendly as it always is. Each day there were more people, some with dogs, out also. When I got home, I had a cold drink of water and relaxed. I may have taken a short nap before starting to read one of the two books I’m working on: Doris Kearns Goodwin’s book about Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft and Elizabeth Pallitto’s book about the poet, Tullia d’ Aragona and her prose and poetry. Both are good reads.

  2. I love the description of your purring kitty! I treasure my Sunday run or bike ride in the reservation. It’s my little piece of heaven right here in the Garden State.
