In January, I found myself dizzy and even nauseous regularly. I went to the doctor and was diagnosed with vertigo. It was something that could likely be fixed if I did certain exercises and I did and it was. That was scary, but the most interesting part was the examination/diagnosis. There were many little physical exercises to test my balance and everything related to this malady.

What I walked away with was an even deeper appreciation for the miracle of our bodies. All the factors that go into balance. Just the physical part of the inner ear. Our body’s ability to heal itself. What is occurring throughout our body – the countless ways it is working – at every moment. And we don’t even know it, and we so often take all of that for granted.
What a miracle we are!

I have kept a gratitude journal for years now, but adapted the style to how Br. David does them here (and in the book). That little difference has added new life and richness to the daily practice. We are all blessed by this workshop, and in so many ways by this Network and all of Br. David’s work.

Thank you for these wonderful eight days of haiku!
Two pups wait with me
Not touched by Barr-time frenzy
Quiet time, we three.
Fingertips gentle on
Skin or fur or petal or…
Puppy swallows soft
Stretches one leg, then one more
Swallows again. Sleeps.
Slept in this morning
Warm covers swaddled, wombed
The birth of day, delayed
Baby being born
Miracles are happening
Nippy, crispy morns
Scent of fresh flowers fill air
I mustn’t miss this spring!~Judith Valente, in The Art Of Pausing, p. 66I love this book, and read a haiku and narrative about it every morning.
Six o’clock traffic
Two blocks over, morning din
Quiet mind, inside
