Dragonflies zigzag through the air picking off mosquitoes as I stand before the sea of reeds that covers the marsh. The the still air is full of the songs of the birds. I can hear the splash of a frog leaping into the water as I move closer to the rue in bloom. It the perfect moment to block out the world and draw in the life. When I was a kid the phrase “Stop the ride I want to get off.” became a thing we said when we just needed a break from a situation that was stressful. Today that same phrase comes to mind not for the purpose of attempting to leave a stressful situation but to pause for a moment and accumulate peace. Rue was once credited with the ability to ward off evil. Perhaps the truth is that it was the process of stepping out away from the source of the trouble for just a few minutes gave one the clarity of mind to deal with the issue.
