This tree continues letting go as the fog moves in

It’s the first day of December, and those of us who love Advent calendars can open the first window.  It’s also Giving Tuesday.  We reflect on what moves and expands us as we choose what and where to share.

The fog floated in softly this morning.  Yesterday I heard leaves falling.  Today the tree is mainly bare, open to the light.

I’m with these words of Thich Nhat Hanh: 

Not talking, by itself, already can bring a significant degree of peace. If we can also offer ourselves the deeper silence of not thinking, we can find, in that quiet, a wonderful lightness and freedom.

May this play of light and dark move in us like branches in the wind.  

This Maple tree still holds her leaves
