Peace and Tranquility in Palm Springs

One evening I was sitting in the south garden at home enjoying a perfect evening in our fair desert. The air was still with a pleasant sweet smell of blooming desert cactus flowers of Spring. The black night sky was punctuated by a stunningly- gorgeous full moon. A few wispy clouds streaked across the sky very high up, giving a rather interesting look. My camera doesn't capture the visual properly but this is close enough. The giant Buddha head reflected in the surface of the pool, giving me pause as I closed my eyes and smiled. Stealing away those moments for oneself in life are utterly essential, in my opinion. Alas that moment is gone forever, now just a memory. But I can now close my eyes and recall that memory--and sense of peace and tranquility with great ease. Seek happiness in life from those little moments, and  allow yourself permission to slow down and take it all in. I'm glad I did on this evening, I have some sense that the memory if it shall remain etched in my mind for many a year.

Stopping to smell the roses, so to speak. I know the importance of it.
