Morning Flight by TFavretto
I hope you are reading this at morning; at the start at least of a new dawning.
Today’s experience is to sit and be in the spaciousness of now – in this present moment.
To allow the moment to have space and peace and an unfurling of its own.
My hope is that you may receive through image and the word and that they may speak to your heart and bring balm to your innermost being.
