A morning inside you
“There is a morning inside you waiting to burst open into Light.” — Rumi
One recent morning, when I was up early, I stepped out onto our deck and was surrounded by the beautiful song of birds and the sound of the nearby creek flowing. Since I had the time, I grabbed my camera to catch just a few seconds of the sound. A few seconds is all I got, because my memory card was too full for anything more.
How like life. It’s just too full of unattended business to savor as much of the gorgeous wealth around me as I would like to savor. Perhaps if I cleared my video card more often, I would have room to capture moments such as this. Perhaps if I cleared my life of onerous busy work, I would have more time for beauty.
But perhaps a few seconds are better than nothing. Perhaps a few seconds are perfect.
Here is the clip, embedded below. I hope these few seconds are refreshing to you, as they still are to me.
