A Visual Meditation

I have been tired today and not feeling all that well.  It has been a slow day.  So I make a simple offering tonight — go over to Anchors and Masts where Tess has created a beautiful video of images from Benedictine and Cistercian monasteries. It really is worth the click over (I am even too tired to figure out how to embed it here) and the four minutes of viewing time.  Turn up your volume and listen to the lovely song as well.

Peace to you this day.

  1. Thanks so much for the link to Tess’ video images “Anchors and Masts”.

    Tess, it is a wonderful piece and I enjoyed it very much!

    Christine, I spent my whole morning sleeping in. I went back to sleep at 7:30 am after the kids left for school and didn’t wake up til 11:30 am. I had no idea I was so tired. Although I don’t remember my dreams, they have left me with a wonderful feeling for the rest of this day :)
