searching for the center in the midst of a scattered day

Breathing is an act of prayer.
-Frank Waters

Breathing in I calm my body and mind.
Breathing out I smile.
-Thich Nhat Hanh


  1. What wonderful quotes; very thought provoking. Beautiful pictures of VT leaves. I can't believe they're turning already!

  2. that's such a calm picture to go with your peaceful quotes. Is that a moleskine notebook? looks like it's eager to accept some writing and drawing.

  3. thanks vivien! yes, the leaves are about a week into changing.

    and paula, yes, it's a moleskine...where i'm keeping track of my "new chapter". my daughter lindsey turned me on to moleskines a few years ago. she asked me not to use them for "to do" lists. (i make a lot of those). these, she said, are more for musings. she wrote in the front of my very first one..."it is meant to incite a riot of creativity". she's a tough one, that lindsey loo.
