These are extraordinary times. Asking extraordinary things from each one of us. I keep coming back to the idea/question - what am I being asked to learn here, now, in this place, in this time? How can we open to the lessons and the love to consciously move forward with this vast example of interdependence and inter-connectedness to all living beings remaining at the center of our every breath? Time will tell. For now, I am trying to show up in each moment and that is not always easy. Sending you all love and please take good care. As a friend has said this is the great “unraveling of society as we know it”. May we follow the thread of this new, yet old, knowing to the human’s embrace of perennial practices in the great unknown.
I hope you are finding rituals, comforts, and movement to stay strong as we wait this out, comfort each other and send a collective prayer to those on the front lines.
I wanted to share a poem by Jan Zwicky (courage-zwicky-poem.pdf). I've also added some recent photos here.
