An Oasis of Peace

A dear friend sent me this photo from her recent travels. 


The photo evokes such a palpable feeling of peace and calm. I sit still, in a quiet comfortable place, and look at the photo; I breathe deeply, effortlessly. 

Sometimes a piece of music, a photograph or a poem can help transport us from the din of everyday life to an oasis of peace. 


Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase "each other" doesn't make any sense.
