Faith seeking understanding, my personal journey towards a deeper knowledge of and intimacy with God, the cosmos, humanity and myself through thoughts, words and (occasionally) images, is a series of [hopefully] daily reflections I’m writing with the purpose of publishing something on a regular basis for others to read, either here, at or among my writings at

As daydreams turn to naps before my computer screen, I realized I had better write something before midnight sneaks up on me and I miss a day.

Today was a day filled with voices and smiles; one should be grateful for these days however many they may be.

But I tend to lose energy when surrounded by people for too long. Too many people for too long, and I am depleted of energy. Pleasantly so, at times, but depleted, nevertheless.

So, perhaps I should prop my eyelids open and appreciate the relative silence of the kitties’ purring. Such silence is a treasure for me—no matter how often it happens.

So off I go now, into the healing silence. Tomorrow will be a quiet day, followed by a boisterous evening.

Yet I will carry the energy of the silence with me through the noise and be content.

Thank you for your time and attention.
I’d love to know your thoughts on what you’ve read.
