I enjoy this time of year, when there is space to sit still, to think, and to breathe. I took this photo last spring while in Colorado, a place that inspires thinking and breathing for me. I was compelled to look at it this morning after I woke from a thankfully lengthy and much needed rest, probably so I would go through my day with a reminder of how much I need quiet in which to do that thinking and breathing from time to time. I hope you all are enjoying some quiet as we look toward a new year. 2017 has been a devil. But aren’t they all devils in some way?
