We Made It!!

Happy Spring my friends!!  I was sitting at a coffee shop yesterday on 4th Ave. & E. 12th St & when that most glorious of moments occurred at precisely 12:57pm, I looked up at the blue sky & proclaimed, Hallefreakin'luuujah!!....This quote was on my zen calendar this week & I think it's a perfect way to celebrate the start of spring & the magnificence that is our planet earth....
"Imagine we are astronauts who have crashed on the moon.  We look across the vastness of space and see the beautiful blue Earth.  But we can’t get back because our ship is damaged.  All we do is look at that brilliant blue beautiful orb in the black sky and dream of being home.

But suppose we managed to fix our ship, and landed back home.  How would we feel when we first set foot upon the Earth?  What would we observe and savor?  How intensely would we experience the sights and smells, the flavors, the feeling of a gentle rain?

That’s how we should walk on the Earth with each step."

-A Walking Exercise from Thich Nhat Hanh

Have a wonderful weekend my friends... remember to Drive Slow & savor it!!
