|Jersey Shore before Irene's arrival|
Silence reminds me to go beyond fear and takes me into the place where love grows, where I can refuse to follow the impulses of anger and dread. Beyond accompanies Silence and roots me . . . to feel myself. Along with Silence and Beyond, Prayer is not too far behind. Prayer is my medicine woman who chants lullingly, clears my head, and brings peace back to my soul.
As Irene hugs the shore, I salute the Sun, and connecting hearts sing to me. I breathe . . . and embrace the moment.
