Backyard prayer

"Can I focus for a moment on the center of my life?"

This was the first question asked on today's audio devotional from the British Jesuits.

Just this morning I realized that my wireless connection extends out well into my backyard. So under the planes (which fly low by my house) and the birds and the spruce trees I sat with my laptop and listened. The music, reading, and meditation were beautiful. Plus there's something to be said for that combination of nature and technology: airplanes, laptop, birds, wireless connection, spruce trees, mp3, Psalms.
