So here we are…
So here we are, in turbulent seas and howling winds. So here we are, in a pandemic.
What to do with our fragile selves, our fragile hearts? Where do we put our fears?
This first: look at the person next to you (animal or human) and say thank you for not fleeing. Tell your neighbor: I am here for you, and I know you are here for me.
Sure, the time is dark, and our leaders are mad fools, but look… I have a candle, as do you. I also have a bowl of soup and a loaf of bread and a song we can sing together.
I have this poem/prayer:
And so… do not despair, for when this passes, as it will, the world will be born anew and love will remain, and life will flourish.
We are together, I believe that’s true.
Share with me how you are helping your brothers and sisters through this time. I’m listening.
Simple, heartfelt, and beautiful. Thank you, LW
Thank YOU, Louanne.
Hi, Lauren. Lovely words. We are in Belize, and our only worry is getting out of Houston for the flight home. Memories of azure seas, tropical paradise will sustain me.
Oh, Christa, so good to hear from you. Be safe and healthy.
