Seeking peace

Tomorrow (Saturday 6 August) is Hiroshima Day - so a good day to remember and seek peace. Donna Watson's post is a beautiful reminder of this event and the shared desire for peace in our modern world.

Our Friday on the mountain started with an amazing rainbow that became a double; but what I liked about it was the way it split the sky into dark and light. For me it in a way represented what we try to achieve through peace - move out of darkness and terror into a brighter quieter way of being. The photos have not been tampered with - photoshopped etc.

I thought I might just share a few images from the block, some temporary (crystal formation) and some more permanent,  that we use to remind us that peace is something that we need to strive for each day.

And of course a favourite quote:

When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will have peace.
