Come In Out of the Wind

“It comes the very moment you wake up each morning. All your wishes and hopes for the day rush at you like wild animals. And the first job each morning consists simply in shoving them all back; in listening to that other voice, taking that other point of view, letting that other larger, stronger, quieter life come flowing in. And so on, all day. Standing back from all your natural fussings and frettings; coming in out of the wind.” – C.S. Lewis

We live in a noisy world. News, cellphones, work demands — near constant connectivity.

As the new year approaches, disconnect and take the time to find quiet. Places of refuge and peace.

In the words of C.S. Lewis, come in out of the wind.
