Midday Meditation: Step outside and feel the air on your skin (however windy—or not—it is wherever you are today!). Simply breathe and feel the touch of the breeze while being attentive to God’s Spirit and your own. What do you feel, taste, hear, see, smell, experience of this moment? Just be there for a space of a few breaths. Here is a prayer-poem from Br. David Steindl-Rast, OSB to wrap up this time in the wind (or stillness! What comes up in you if there *isn’t* wind to respond to?): SOURCE OF ALL BLESSINGS, you bless us with wind. Gentle fierce, warm and humid or icy or hot and dry, may it caress my skin and make it tingle, refresh my spirit and make it wide awake so that I might pass on lightheartedness to everyone I meet. - Br. David Steindl-Rast, OSB
