I work, read about the Enlightenment, and sleep - not necessarily in that order. And, of course, opera, ballet, modern dance, friends, family, theater, Youtube, gardening, and one of my personal favorites -- studying clouds -- white ones, puffy ones, high ones, low ones, big ones, small ones. This all works pretty good, actually.
I find peace in the embrace of my children, within the purest love.
I find peace reading books that were written out of conviction or certainty, turning my cellphone off, and listening to silence. I also find peace when I do my job as a citizen or a professional. I find peace thinking that we all can make the difference out of our small own behavior. Finally, I do find peace focusing on the present moment.

I find peace concentrating in the present moment, in the breathing act and in the solid ground that I step.
