A Place of Being

In this place, there is space for you to simply be. No action is required, only your presence. As the saying on the invitation goes, your presence is presents enough.

How about that thought? The idea that simply by being present, you might be giving someone else a gift. I didn't used to get this, but I do now. No activity will ever replace having space.

Hi Kris,

Nice painting ... I can see it in my reader ... Blogger is having problems lately.

I too now get this. When I was desperately sick years ago ... enough so I could not be alone ... friends used to come by for a half hour so my partner could go out and shop and such. (My symptoms were so bad I needed lots of help).

Some of them used to be so grateful for spending time with me ... eventually I got that they were talking about just this.

I get it much better now ... that being together is quite a bit!
