I hope that all of you have been weathering the storms around us.
"A good friend of mine said, "You are married to sorrow." And I looked at him and said, "I am not married to sorrow. I just choose not to look away."
And I think there is deep beauty in not averting our gaze.
No matter how hard it is, no matter how heartbreaking it can be. It is about presence. It is about bearing witness.
I used to think bearing witness was a passive act. I don't believe that anymore. I think that when we are present, when we bear witness, when we do not divert our gaze, something is revealed—the very marrow of life. We change. A transformation occurs. Our consciousness shifts.—Terry Tempest Williams
We will all be forever changed by the events of the last year. Hopefully for the better, more resilient more compassionate and more appreciative of life.
Thank you for stopping by and for your patience and kindness to me.
