Stop Minding Your Own Business — Meditations in Motion (Reblog)

My husband and I slept in one day last week. Bill likes to have a cup of coffee before our run, so we didn’t get out the door until after 9:00, much later than we usually go. We had a nice run, then came home to hot showers and a leisurely brunch. I couldn’t help […]

Three Things I Think About When I Can’t Sleep — Meditations in Motion (Reblog)

‘Rain’ a Poem

Contemplate the rain, this fleeting season,
changes I can do nothing about.
Sitting, watching, listening; the hanging drops
on vacant washing lines and leaves,
all testimony to nature,
that the laws of men may come and go,
yet eternal truths stand starkly before us:
Our choice to ignore.
The harder I try the less I get in return.
But the gentle rush of rain brings it back,
the raucous calls of crows
sitting in out in shedding trees;
the clutter of my mind
stands between what is me
and my self.
