Boats in the Snow 3

In Annapolis this week we have had some lovely snowstorms. Driving to work yesterday was definitely challenging, but I do have those years of driving in Michigan which will last you forever.At least I think so. I would drive to downtown Detroit from Ann Arbor on Sundays for meditation with Yogacharya J Oliver Black, a devotee of Paramahansa Yogananda who started a meditation and satsang group called Self Realization Fellowship or SFR back in the 1950s.
Mr Black was definitely an enlightened Master in his own right and had a fairly large group of people who attended the Sunday meditation at a beautiful old church in Detroit.

I remember the many beautiful and deep experiences of meditation I had then and how those experiences gave and continue to give me such peace in my life.
My present teacher is Sai Maa Lakshmi Devi, an Enlightened Master with whom I have been studying for the last 6 years. This is my 7th year with Sai Maa. I feel very blessed and I am so grateful to have Maa in my life. Her teachings are very clear and down to earth. They can be found on her website and at the bookstore on that website a book called Petals of Grace.

Today I went for a great walk down to the river and took some photos. The contrast of the snowy river and the boats is lovely.

  1. Hi, Sue. It’s my first time visiting your blog. I like the way your paired photographs of winter stillness with some of your remembrances about meditation and teachers.

  2. I was in Annapolis myself on a wintery day such as this, when the whole harbor was covered in ice. Do you live in Annapolis then? It’s great that you’ve been doing meditation all these years. You must be a very peaceful person. Nice to meet you virtually. 🙂

    • Hi Cathy,
      I work in Annapolis as a Nurse Anesthetist on a freelance basis. I have place where I can stay there and it is near the Magathy River in Cape St Clair. I am so fortunate to have that house. It is really a lovely neighborhood.
