True silence is the rest of the mind; it is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment.
I’m sick. It’s been a whole year since my last cold. I even had to call in sick yesterday from work. I lied down on the sofa, for a good part of yesterday, which is probably the noisiest place in the house. The kids buzzed around me in the hyperactive, rainy day way. I was finally able to gather them up and convinced them to watch movies with me. We watched the The Black Stallion and A Wrinkle in Time. It was a nice way to get a little rest.
Today was even better. I got the kids off to school and came home. It was silent and beautiful, especially for my aching head. I do feel a little better today, but now I have an annoying cough. I’ll just have to keep sipping my tea.
I painted the above painting on Friday of last week for Illustration Friday. It’s been a really long time since I played.
