Slipping into silver

Winter draws me back behind its veil. I've been tripping about, exclaiming at signs of spring, but not today. One step forward, one step back is the transition dance right now. I draw back from driving through the traffic to yoga, and instead wander down to the jetty to sit.  It's late afternoon. I can feel the day dropping away. Gently, the incoming tide laps against the rocks.
The scene is luminous, yet without colour, and my mind slips into stillness, into liquid silver. One definition of yoga is the stilling of the mind. Here as I sit, I am in yoga.

One step forward .. one step back.. transition. The dance of transition.. stillness.
Lovely . ( I'll tell you a secret. I'm a closet dancer!!)

How lovely to feel spring and how how startling to feel it slip back into winter. If I close my eyes, I can almost feel your "dance" through your words. How lovely.

Wow this is beautiful!
I have just started reading (and filling in) your book 'the visual diary' and it is so super beautiful!
I feel very inspired by your blog and book.
