Autumn Tranquility

Lochan Mor reflections on a perfect early autumn day

Lochan Mor, Rothiemurchus

Lochan Mor in the golden hour before sunset, on a perfect early autumn day of complete calm, and incredible clarity of light.  This was a few weeks ago at the end of September – we haven’t had any days like this since!  Its wonderful to experience such colour and clarity, a feeling of being at peace in-between the in breath and out breath in the cycle of the seasons.

“My place is placeless,
a trace of the traceless.
Neither body or soul.

I belong to the beloved,
have seen the two worlds as one
and that one call to and know,

first, last, outer, inner, only that
breath breathing human being.”

– from ‘Essential Rumi’ by Coleman Barks
