A Duet

gathering light

The hills behind their home were singing a song…..a melody filled with color and light. As they walked out into that garden, the moment itself lifted them into another world. They had happened upon one of those places where the separation between this world and heaven was very thin. They both knew they didn’t “deserve” this. They had stumbled upon it and found a way to live there. It was really a matter of being unwilling to live anywhere else. The distractions of money and prestige and power had been silenced by pain. Their only desire was to live………to be in the moment as it flowed toward the sea. He was learning to know another person…to break free of his self imposed isolation. She was learning to quiet the storm…to break away from her need for distraction….For words.

Together they were learning how to breathe again.
