Deep Peace

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the infinite peace to you.

This Gaelic blessing has been going through my head lately, in a time when there seems to be little peace.  I’ve been focusing on the good, the light, the peace that does exist to calm my thoughts.

Also, my mind has been going back to New Skete Monastery where I held the Seeing with New Eyes photography retreats last year.  It’s been going there because it is a place of peace and also because we have just scheduled another retreat there for next May.

So for today, I share some peaceful images from my time at New Skete and the hope for deep peace.
