Valley

The world is in a crazy state right now, but there is peace in the valley. Peace where no one can see. Peace in your thoughts. Peace in your actions. No matter how the earth thrashes and bucks, we each have our own place of healing. Sometimes mine is music, sometimes it's in writing, sometimes it's in art. Sometimes I find peace in the earth—ironically enough—the smell of warm dirt, of sweet grass, of birds chirping, of dogs swishing their tails. I find peace in a record rotating with a needle digging deep. I find peace in a cup of tea. I find peace in the early morning, when life is vibrating at a slow and steady rhythm. I wish peace for everyone, no matter when, no matter where.

  1. I wish you peace too Amy. I'm going for a walk now down to my favourite little place of peace at the mill. And you will be with me in my thoughts when I'm there. Love you x

  3. Amy this was very sweet and very much what I needed. I need peace more than anything right now. It's been rough in revision land and at work and this is the first time someone has given me peace. Thank you.

  5. Amy, we live in a spot where, if I neither listened to the radio, nor watched TV, our peace would be total. But somehow there is a pressing (depressing) desire to know what's going on in the world. It must be a form of masochism. I'm with all your peace-finding moments, other than the turntable! I wish I had one, as I have a good collection of vinyl gathering dust.
