Creating Peace in this Moment

Rainbow Heron
I was painting this heron statue this  morning and noticing that my thoughts were racing all over the place. At that moment, I was listening to a song by Karen Drucker, titled
In This and Every Moment. If you have not discovered her yet, she is an amazing singer/songwriter.

This song had the effect of calming down my sympathetic nervous system so that I could jump out of  the fight / flight/ freeze moment and simply return to painting.  Please know that we are given thousands of moments to return to peace every single day.
