I am back in my house in Canada, the wind is gusting to over 70 kph (45 mph) making walking outside unpleasant. We walked anyway, to the store where we bought some groceries including fruit and vegetables as the fridge was quite bare. It rained in the morning but is now sunny. However, this is not a good time to even think of naturist activity as it is far from warm. Meditation was an indoor activity with a little electric heater needed for my Buddhist corner. In saying all of this, I have nothing to complain about as it is great to be in our home.

A Cocoon Of Air
Sitting on the cushion
within a world that is cold and gray
a new space emerges as breathing
becomes focused and mindful.
Breathing in and allowing the senses
to be present and accepting of
the clouds that bar the sun from
bringing its warmth and light,
breathing in and then breathing out.
The cold and dullness of the day
enclosed within walls
are soon set aside
not denied or pushed away
as shadows are given their
place in the present moment
shadows co-existing with light
both becoming one.
