Stillness is the only thing in this world
that has no form.
But then, it is not really a thing,
and it is not of this world.
~ Eckhart Tolle ~
There was a big old cranky pants at my house last night and it was me. I had been up since 5:30 in the morning and didn't get home until almost 5:30 in the afternoon.
First of all I had a failed attempt at trying to pay taxes on my van I sold last month. After driving around for 15 minutes trying to find a place to park, walking up 3 million steps (I know, I counted them), and standing in line for 20 minutes, I was told I couldn't pay them in that county. But, but, but.....it says right here on this card I received that I can pay them in any county. The snotty clerk just looked at me like I was something icky that was stuck to the bottom of her shoe and called the next person in line. but, but, but.....
Then it was a four hour auction and lugging lots of purchases to my car and mom calling in the middle with a crisis and .........well you know how it is. I'm sure you have plenty of those days, too.
So, yes, stillness is good and a cup of eggnog in front of the fire counts as stillness in my book.
I'll be back tomorrow with more Christmas photos.
