Since I was a kid, I have loved daydreaming under a tree.
Today, during a contemplative moment at the Abbey of Gethsemani, a monastery for Trappists monks in Kentucky, I realized doing that meant I was looking up. I like everything that implies.
Have a great weekend, and if you find yourself with a few minutes to spare, take a cue from the monks and spend it in silent contemplation, you’ll be amazed how quickly your worldview can change.
