A Year of Listening, Week 5

Here in the stillness of snow falling on snow. –Taneda Santoka

I chose this beautiful image weeks ago; today snow is falling in the Shenandoah Valley. It is a good day for listening.

The dryer is rotating, soon the kettle will whistle. I am listening for assurance.

I switched metaphorical directions in the autumn, from an adventurous Westward Ho! to a barely imagined True North. I am listening for signs that I am holding to the new course.

The stillness will tell me; I only need to listen.

  1. This is another of our ‘likenesses’… for me, Stopping By Wood – Robert Frost always speaks to that New England girl in me that finds such peace and introspection in the quiet of a snow storm. I love to walk during that time while the world is in a muffled state to hear the inner rhythm.
