When the world is loud

When the world is loud, and the distractions are incessant, it is time to retreat.

 Quiet, purposeful, intentional.
 Breathing in and out slowly.

 Feeling the breeze, smelling the flowers.
 Savoring the possibility of strawberries in coming weeks.
 Observing the innocence of youth.
 The smallest blessings.
 The promise of the harvest.

 The glory of full bloom.
 The beauty of collective spirit.

The joy and wonder are there for the taking; sometimes we must simply shut out the rest of the world to listen, feel, appreciate what we have.
