Your moment of zen

Mondays can be harried and harassed. Time to get back to "the grind," the world of busyness beckons, wrapping us in a whirlwind of do-nexts. 
Perhaps that makes it even more important to sit and listen to the whispers in the wind...

  3. It was summer 2010 when I was living in my coworker's townhouse while he was stationed abroad with his family...The house was next to an area with lots of huge pine trees and birch trees..it was a lovely summer, hot days and breezy evenings, and I would often just sit in the backyard listening to the trees swaying in the wind in the early evening. I tell ya, it was amazing the connection I felt to the nature - it's even hard to put it into words. Just felt like those trees were alive and I was a part of nature.

    1. The beauty is that you can play the video over and over again. I watched it several times.

  6. I remember one night when I was still just a girl I was flipping through channels, stressed out and tired for no reason, and my mom suggested we go sit on the back porch for awhile. We just sat there, watching the birds hop around in the trees, and after a few minutes I felt revitalized, happy again; it was an incredible lesson.

    Beautiful post!

    1. Nature does that for me too. One (and i say ONE because there are many things) of the things that drive me a bit bonkers during the winter is not being able to sit outside and soak the sun's energy, watch the clouds flitter across the skies and listen to the trees. Thanks Emily!

  7. With the drone of the plane or whatever with the leaves rustling, it made me sleepy. Very nice. That sound reminds me of summers at my grandparents hanging out in the sun on the lawn furniture.

    1. I wasn't going to post the video with the planes but there was something soothing about it, so I used this one.
