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.
