A quietly beautiful essay on contemplation and mindfulness, and just what I needed this Sunday morning. "What you practice is what you perfect." Thank you, Jane Smiley.

Weaving through life's questions and finding peaceful and beautiful answers for herself in each paragraph, Smiley created an enlightening essay. "Eventually, and it doesn’t take long at all, everyone you want to see will turn up." This particular acknowledgment of her home and what is needed for happiness elegantly reminds me of things I enjoy near my home and thereby gives me solace.
