Here is my contribution to a quiet Advent moment.
I don't know about you, but all creative activities have had to take second place to Christmas preparations. Trying to fit in a few minutes quiet contemplation seems to be difficult, but I usually manage to stop and watch the birds on the feeders while drinking my morning cup of tea. I enjoy the fact that as well as the cyclamen flowering, I have an azalea about to bloom and my orchids will be out for Christmas.
This was a couple of years ago, it is considerably larger now.
I hope you manage your own few moments of peace.
