Black Belt in Inner Peace #20

Black Belt in Inner Peace contains short journal entries I have kept and continue to add to, as I go for a black belt in inner peace by endeavoring to move through each busy and sometimes stressful day with greater grace and ease.

Number 20: Pure grace

I’ve been working hard all week, getting ready for an upcoming gig, and this afternoon I took a badly needed break and sat by the bay window and watched the tall trees bend in a furious wind, waving their limbs like wild dancers, breaking up and scattering the bright afternoon light everywhere as if the light was cosmic paint … and for about 30 seconds I was filled with such unexpected happiness that was not of my own making but from some merciful grace that took me into its mystic beauty long enough to transform my fatigue to joy.
