However, today I found my mind racing as I stepped outside on this cool, sunny day.
Speeding through my mind were: grocery lists, to-do lists, Janet and Celia's visit Monday-Wednesday(yay!!), yard work, pottery making, pottery inventory for May Show, getting in touch with the insurance company about still-unfinished work on my house, Mah Jongg hands, how to hide my too short haircut, what hors d'eurve to make for Saturday night, paper work, bills, bills, bills, dinner tonight, weeds flourishing in my yard, Tim Urban handling getting kicked off of Idol (puleeze!), how to curb my sweet tooth, getting packed for the upcoming trip to the Kentucky Derby, finishing my hat for that event, keeping up with my bird feeder demands, etc. etc. etc.
Suddenly I came upon several political signs posted on neighbor's lawns. One in particular caught my eye. It was a "get out and vote" sign for a Jacqueline Still, who is running for a Circuit Court Judge position.
Her last name: "STILL" was a great reminder for me to quiet the voices in my head, take a deep breath, enjoy the surrounding beauty of nature...and, just be "still".
And, so I did... : )
"Learning how to be still, to really be still and let life happen - that stillness becomes a radiance. " Morgan Freeman
