A Blog About Peace

.
As I write the 50th post in this blog about enjoying peace in both the inner and outer worlds, I am feeling at peace. The neighbourhood around me has been very quiet for the last hour or so. The sun is shining. The air is still. The temperature is slightly cool, which is good as I will be having an active day today.

A little while ago on my Continual Journeys blog, I mentioned two songs by Gustav Mahler that I particularly like. Today, I thought I'd make three links to them on You Tube so that you can experience them for yourself (especially if you have not heard them before). You may then feel in the mood to buy several performances of the songs on cd.
