Finding Stillness in Winter

Enjoying the seasons feels like such a blessing... walked for several miles in the lightly falling rain with my sis and her boyfriend this afternoon. There's so much quiet here, not what a lot of people (myself included) imagine about Philly I think. Taking some time for quiet reflection is such a natural and important [...]
