This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realise it is play. The only thing that is ultimately real about your journey is the step that you are taking at this moment. That’s all there ever is. I’m here to tell you that the path to peace is right there, when you want to get away. When you are present, you can allow the mind to be as it is without getting entangled in it. If you miss the present moment, you miss your appointment with life. That is very serious!

Morning is my favourite time
W&N watercolour on DalerRowney 220gsm heavy-weight sketching paper
Morning is my favourite time when everything is new;
flowers drink the morning dew and skies are painted in a golden hue.
Each tree stands tall and stately – different shades and different face.
I’m viewing morning’s painting, done with Nature’s brush of Grace.
The sun peeks slowly in the East, then rises with its smile;
Another morning greeting and we walk another mile.
