This shot of my bookshelves might seem like an odd choice for peace, but it really personifies one of the biggest ways I find peace in my daily life. There’s (chocolate hazelnut) tea, my oil burner with vanilla-lime oils, and my Jane Austen tea cup. My books are peeking out from underneath. There’s my holy water bottle from Rome (that I was actually given in Mexico) right above the oil burner. My “I’d rather be reading Jane Austen” bumper sticker and my “Hell is empty and all the devils are here” magnet are sticking their noses in. It is, despite what the magnet says, a picture of things that help create a peaceful atmosphere in my daily life.
So what gives you peace? What helps you to calm down and recover from the crazy world around you? Or do you not live in a crazy world?
