The 52 Lists project #42


img_8367List the things that make you feel peaceful:

  • Water. Being in it or just being close to it. The sound of waves, the movement of water.
  • Sunrises. Ah, relief, that the earth is still on its axis, and another day is before me.
  • Sunsets. The day comes to an end, and all is right with the world.
  • The moon. One luminous point in the night sky, whose position and shape help to mark the passage of hours and weeks.
  • Soft clouds in blue sky.
  • Fluffy pillows and soft blankets.
  • The poetry of Mary Oliver.
  • A dog sleeping in my lap.
  • A warm beverage.
  • A glider. My grandmother used to have one, and I’ve always found that gentle, back and forth movement soothing.
  • A rocking chair. Ideally, gentle rocking while singing a lullaby, with a sleeping baby in arms.
