The Magic of the Morning


“This is my simple religion. No need for temples. No need for complicated philosophy. Your own mind, your own heart is the temple. Your philosophy is simple kindness.”  ~ Dalai Lama XIV

“It’s a little embarrassing that after 45 years of research & study, the best advice I can give people is to be a little kinder to each other.”  ~ Aldous Huxley

“It’s all a matter of paying attention, being awake in the present moment, and not expecting a huge payoff. The magic in this world seems to work in whispers and small kindnesses.”  ~ Charles de Lint

It never occurred to me that it would still be out there when I went to take the trash out. There was thick fog when I went out to see the sunrise. It was still there an hour later. Now, after yet another hour it is still foggy. When I first went out my jaw literally dropped at the sight of the fog. Then I turned my head to see the Moon sitting just above the hill, with rings of orange, blue, and silver. Stunning, breathtaking, magical stuff. Some Celtic lore says that it is in the mist that the Spirit world and the material world intermingle at their closest. It is also the Full Moon. I don’t have to expect magic, it is already here. Tis a lovely day, right out of the gate. Magic is good.

Peace out, y’all. Goof gloriously.
