Snow Stillness

     Meditation involves quieting or stilling the mind. Sometimes just looking at a peaceful scene can help to quieten or still the mind.

     The photos from the natural environment in the galleries listed below are offered as a simple means of quieting the mind before a time of meditation. (Perhaps they will especially serve those who live in a large city -- my wife and I understand what it is like to live in a high-rise apartment complex in a metropolitan area.)

     A larger image of each photo can be viewed at the bottom of a gallery by clicking on a particular photo.
