In Tune With Something Greater (#276)

A silent moment. Your chest rises and falls with your breath entering and leaving your body. You can feel your fingers pulsating. The wind rustles the leaves on a nearby tree. It’s just you and your surroundings.

In these moments I find peace and clarity. I find gratitude in the sounds I hear. I find gratitude in my senses and ability.
