This last weekend, we went to a mountain community in Northeastern Arizona. It is a cowboy town for sure and I am a big city (sort of) kind of guy. My brother in law lives there and recently purchased a new home with an incredible view from the side of a mountain.
We got there Saturday around noon and spent the afternoon just chilling on the front deck doing nothing. It was magical.
Sunday morning I got up at my regular time around 5AM, made some keto coffee and sat in the front room to watch the sunrise through the panoramic windows facing the view. The moon was up in the night sky but it was in the east and around 7AM the sun began to come up and it was behind the moon. The picture of the moon illuminated by the sun was just incredible.
Watching this in the dead quiet of the morning is a wonderful reminder to just stop and be in the moment and experience the wonder of the world around us. I did the same thing Monday morning and its just awe inspiring.
It was a deeply moving reminder to find the sacred in everything....because everything is sacred.
