Stillness

Filed under: Uncategorized — freethepen @ 1:45 pm

KODAK Digital Still Camera Some mornings the air is still, the trees remain in place waiting for a breeze or a small bird to touch a branch. The breath pulls in deeply and sighs with release. Write about the last time you stood in stillness and enjoyed the soft touch of a moment.

Bowls

Filed under: Uncategorized — freethepen @ 2:24 pm

KODAK Digital Still Camera I’ve heard that in certain spiritual practices bowls should never be empty. If they aren’t filled with fruit or other food items, they should be filled with blessings for others. What would you put in this bowl? What would it mean to put those items in the bowl? Are there certain intentions you would be utilizing?

Surprises!

Filed under: Uncategorized — freethepen @ 12:57 pm

KODAK Digital Still Camera Don’t we love surprises? When was the last time someone surprised you with flowers? How did it feel? Who was it? What flowers were sent? Was it a holiday or for no particular reason? Write out the experience in all its details.

If you have never received flowers as a surprise, did you send flowers to surprise someone? If you haven’t done that either, then who would you like to receive flowers from or who would you like to send them to?
