What a wonderful effect the blue sky has on our moods! Even towards the end of the year, when summer's heat has drifted to cooler air, the light cheers the mind and can make us want to sing. After a wonderful musical concert this week, the air was still warm and easy, and the riverside walk so tranquil. It's been a nice indian summer, and it's comforting to lie in bed and still feel a pleasant glow in the muscles while lying in peace.
The birds still seem to be out to play, and even the trees don't seem to know it's autumn. At times like this, it's nice to walk in the open air, and reflect on all that's good in the world. People smile more, and walk with an easy pace. There's so much to be thankful for, and there's always a reason to be cheerful, something good around the corner, someone to help, someone to chat with. In all our busy-ness, there is so much to support us, if we can relax and be mindful. Here's to the blue sky :-)
