smiles for everyone

I have been going back to one of my favorite books lately, Peace Is Every Step, by Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh. In the foreward, there's a poem that has offered me simple, yet profound inspiration lately. I would like to share it with you, my friends and readers (whoever you might be):

Peace is every step.
The shining red sun is my heart.
Each flower smiles with me.
How green, how fresh all that grows.
How cool the wind blows.
Peace is every step.
It turns the endless path to joy.

Wishing peace, smiles and joy in all that you do, feel and experience.

Thanks for the wish of smiles
(especially on this cold wind morning literally and figuratively)

Good for you! It has, over the years, provided much need reminders on how to slow down and appreciate each moment. And how to appreciate slowing down for that matter! :-D
