Primed with Inner Stillness

It's another beauteous summer day. Breakfast on the deck with two friends. Insightful conversation. And now the heat and humidity begin to rise....

The day began with T'ai Chi Chih practice. I hit the deck before the full complement of guests and partner were up and moving. It was quiet, calm, green, and utterly peaceful. I knew intuitively that I needed all the centering and relaxation that I could muster and so I focused my intent on slowing, breathing, being.

Now as I go about my day with guests in my house (including a dog that inadvertently intimidates our cat and all the winged ones) I'll be primed with inner stillness and tranquility. I can't ask for more than that.
