May you always...

 ”May you always have walls for the winds, a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire, laughter to cheer you, those you love near you and all your heart might desire.” (Irish blessing)


It’s raining today – big drops of water are smattering against the window, I hear soft voices discussing. Someone’s laughing somewhere far away; someone else is opening a door and gently closing it, too. The air is warm although I’m hiding under a big scarf.  The tea is slightly bitter (the tea bag has been in the mug for too long) and it’s burning my tongue. It’s too light.


This moment right now is peaceful and calm. My mind is empty, only absorbing what’s going on around it. A moment of stillness is necessary for happiness; it completes feelings of energy, excitement and passion, it stills the fire and lets it burn longer.
