  1. Be still my heart.

    Sit and read. Sit and watch a movie. Sit and think. Sit and talk with my dear wife Karen.

    Walk and still be happy. Drive to enjoy the scenery and still be happy. Golf with my friends and still be happy.

    Still is pretty cool in many forms, Colleen.

  2. Colleen, for a million years i have been like the shark, always on the go, always moving, sometimes without reason or destination but purefy to be moving. Now I find a little stillness in my life and sometimes I am ill prepared for it so I fight it. I suspect I will fight the stillness for the duration. If for no other reason, because sometimes somethings I fight for the sake of fighting. I am learning the value of a nap, I just make it part of my game plan. LOL LOL please take care, Bill

    • I have difficulty sitting still. I truly do. But when I do, I notice benefits. I bet sharks have a form of stillness Bill. Surely it has something to do with getting their prey… πŸ˜‰

      • Colleen, Smiling, maybe I should have used a different metaphor than shark, because I am surely not looking for prey. Sleep is one of those things that eluded me over the years, I know the life style I chose had a lot to do with it, but now I am learning the benefit of a nice nap. So you can teach old dogs new tricks LOL. Take care, Bill

  3. Be in the moment. Use your senses. See the forest for the trees, hear the birds, touch the earth, taste the fresh air, smell the flowers. Beautifully brilliant.

    Can you tell I love this one? I think I need to print this out and put it in a place where I can be reminded.

    • I am totally flattered! Someone once printed one of my shadow people blogs and put it on her wall and she showed me a picture of it! I was beyond tickled! (Not that I am expecting you to do the same….though if you did I would give you a billion bonus points.) πŸ˜‰

      I’m glad you loved this. πŸ™‚

  4. I love this, Colleen! I am constantly listening and chattering, no silent moments! I need a ‘retreat’ to woods and thoughts, someday soon! Meanwhile, I got up and ‘beat’ the elderly to the computer! At midnight, in my Mom’s Senior Living Apts. there was still a lady playing Solitaire! I wrote a summer time poem, had my Mom use her teacher’s skills to correct and edit it! This was a fun “first” half day of my Vacation! See you again, soon! Hugs, Robin

  5. Stillness …. that is so good for heart and soul! I had my moment of stillness the other day when I was going to meet up with physiotherapist about my sore knee. Was early so I stopped by the park, I sat down there in the sunshine .. and thought about absolutely nothing. I know exactly what you mean with this post and I know the feel. Great thinking here, Colleen.
