There Are

Days of beauty, pain, rain, and production.  

When they happen all at once, amazing things can take place.

Approach

"When we approach with reverence, great things decide to approach us. Our real life comes to the surface and its light awakens the concealed beauty in things. When we walk on the earth with reverence, beauty will decide to trust us. The rushed heart and arrogant mind lack the gentleness and patience to enter that embrace.”

I Will Not Harbor Hate in My Heart

It has taken me maybe too much time to form these words as an articulation of faith and path, but I finally have.

I accept, and hence enormously share, the feelings of pain, fear, anger, confusion, sadness, loss, grief, hopelessness, helplessness, displacement, disillusionment, rudderlessness, lost identity, and anxiety that have been on the horizon for months.  Injustices festering for generations...I hear the history. I am a child of that history.

I understand and respect the need for reparation, security, and growth as a nation.

I will do my part to make that happen, but I will not harbor hate in my heart.

Thanksgiving

is next week.  It completely slipped my radar until a few minutes ago and is an unusual gut punch.
