peace.....

peace: hush.....repose....serenity.....tranquillity.....silence......stillness......calmness......
quiescence....calm.....quietude.....rest.......
i've noticed a trend for picking a "word of the year" on many of the blogs that
i follow. i haven't picked a word....it seems to have picked me. for the last month
i've been drawn to peace symbols....i wear them on my wrists....i have peace
symbol earrings....one hangs from the rear view mirror of my car.....peace....
the last part of 2009 kicked my axis off kilter and left me struggling... trying to find
balance after a tumultuous upheaval to my soul.......and all i wanted was to find
peace within myself.........
i adorned myself with peace symbols long before most of you were even born.....i was....indeed...
a child of the 70's....but the peace i seek now is a truer peace...deep....spiritual....comforting....
so as i explore the paths i feel may lead me to this peace....i will bear the weight of many
peace symbols.....i want to feel their touch on my skin.... to remind me of the treasure i seek.
always the gypsy......i begin another sojourn....this crisp new year.....towards peace.....my
word of the year..........PEACE........
