Peaceful Fridays.....

Yet another week has passed and so a lunar cycle. Life keeps on chugging along without nearly a blink of an eye.

So, this Saturday under the full moon, step outside and don't blink. Take 5 minutes to stand under the light of the moon and then just listen and feel.
What do you hear? Is there an owl hooting in the distance? a car passing down your road? or is there the sound of silence?
What do you feel? Is there a gentle breeze touching your skin? or is the wind quiet and still? Can you feel the moonlight bouncing off of your skin?
What do you smell? Is there the smell of a wood fire burning? or is there just the smell of the season - damp and earthy?

In just 5 minutes of not blinking you'll open your senses, but, most importantly, you will clear your mind. The stresses of the week will disappear even if it's only for these 5 minutes.

Now, isn't this a wonderful way to end the week?

Have a peaceful weekend, y'all..............


  1. Sounds great, but it's gonna rain all we won't be able to see the moon anyway.

    But I would so do it if it were going to be clear!

    Happy Weekend!

  2. Thanks, Toni. You all have a great weekend, too. :)

  3. For the first time in several weeks I heard our Barred Owl, and this morning there was the smell of wood burning--We must be in the same neighborhood!! I hope you have a good weekend too--It's supposed to be nice and warmer weather--If we don't get blown away first! :-)

  4. Don't you just love the moon! I love to be outside and enjoy the great outdoors!
