Reflecting

Stillness
Quiet
Peace
Listening
Pondering
Reflecting
Lots of words for something we don’t embrace as a culture. I remember our friend Yim talking about how in Thailand they begin to teach meditation to kindergarten children and the first block of time was 15 minutes.
15 minutes… I wonder if I can do that. If I can sit for 15 minutes and not think.  If I can just be quiet. 
There is so much going on in my mind. Quiet does not seem to be much of a possibility.  I am going to try.  A moment. A moment of quiet. A moment with the dogs not barking, the phone not ringing, a moment with only silence.
I think things are at a place such a thing is possible.

I will let you know how it goes….

Hoping.
