Claymont dawn

What a joy to step out into the early morning, see Venus still bright in the Eastern sky, breathing, with the bird on the highest branch, waiting for the first light of dawn.

Our Women’s Retreat at Claymont Court gave us clear night stars, a glorious moon and two precious dawns. Some of us enjoyed a night venture into the meadow and also an early rising to greet the sunrise with Qi Gong in the ballroom.

Now that a hurricane is bringing us clouds and rain, can we summon up the beauty of those clear skies in our minds? Stay inspired, stop occasionally to breathe mindfully, eat more slowly, walk carefully, listen deeply, speak kindly?

Clouds come, clouds go….my mind is a clear blue sky.
