When You Find Yourself Pressed Against the Window

Dark clouds

It’s been a tough few days. A series of events can make you feel drained and exhausted. So I’m doing some self-talk about not being too hard on myself and allowing myself to rest.

I have a box of letterpress type to sort, letters to send, and books to read. I love Jill Bolte Taylor’s thoughts about inner peace. Jill is a brain researcher and neuron-anatomist who had a stroke at age 37 and spent eight years coming back from that.


“To experience peace does not mean that your life is always blissful. It means that you are capable of tapping into a blissful state of mind amidst the normal chaos of a hectic life.” – Jill Bolte Taylor
