“Whatever peace I know rests in the natural world, in feeling myself a part of it, even in a small way.”.……May Sarton
This quote expresses such tender wisdom, pulling us back to an ancient feeling of connectedness to all things. When we live in harmony with the natural world, we avail ourselves to inner peace…and a sense of being a part of something grand and glorious!
I was reminded of this today when our small group of hummingbirds who winter here were buzzing their feeders, each claiming territory. Always attuned to their priorities, hummers are a fascinating study in the dance of life. Whenever I watch them, I feel wonder and mystery….and a sense that Mother Nature is always present, always creating a world of balance and harmony.
