Where do you go for peace or solace? One of my common answers would be to go outdoors. However, I need to have a place in the house that is my place of calm and comfort. Call it an altar perhaps, but this is my place of Ahhhhhhhh.
The news is filled with stories of fear and sadness. But that is not all of the world. There are wonderful things happening every day. People are helping one another.
