     This morning I was dealing with some stressful issues, as many of us do during the holidays. I wanted to spend some time on a small drawing for myself which I could post to my blog and title - "Peace". As often happens when I sit down with a creative idea, the idea took on a life of its own.
     As I was looking for a nice quote about peace to share with you, I stumbled across the word namasté. I took a yoga class a few years ago and that is where I first learned its definition. Yoga is not something I do often. It is something I intend to do often. I intend to do it at least three times a week, in fact. (I intend to do it tonight. We'll see how that goes). But, if we could learn to use that word as a universal hello and goodbye every day, and every time we use it connect to its meaning, we may create a world of . . . PEACE.

My soul honors your soul
I honor the place in you where
the entire universe resides.
I honor the light, love, truth,
beauty, and peace within you,
because it is also within me.
In sharing these things
we are united, we are the same,
we are one.

What a powerful pack of goodness in one word! 
Namasté, my friends.
