At this time of the year
candlelight and tingsha bells, or cymbals, introduce me
to a new day.
Through touch and sense of smell
The ritual of applying face oil
embellished with sweet smelling essential oils of
Green tea with jasmine flowers
Through observing colour and shape
Through bringing the beauty of nature into my home
and creating a corner of gratitude
Through still life
as the afternoon gently slips towards the evening
Bringing presence into my home.
There are so many ways to stillness
Have you found yours?
