It's a transformative experience to simply pause instead of immediately filling up the space. By waiting, we begin to connect with fundamental restlessness, as well as fundamental spaciousness.
~ Pema Chodron
Last night I slept in Taos, New Mexico, and I will again tonight. Perhaps I'll then move on to Santa Fe or back to Minnesota. I don't know. All I know or need to know is this is where I am, where I believe I'm supposed to be right now. It feels right.
I've never watched the movie, "Fly Away Home." A few nights ago I came across this clip in a seemingly haphazard fashion I cannot retrace, looking for one thing and finding another. Perhaps it was one of those times when I was led to see what I needed to see. What I know for certain is I felt at peace watching and listening. It reminds me of that wonderful film, "Winged Migration." I love the images, the ideas - so sweet and beautiful - and Mary Chapin Carpenter's song, "10,000 Miles," is the perfect accompaniment. It just feels apropos to my life right now. Metaphors and messages. Listening and being. I hope you experience a similar sense of peace.
