Here in this blustery day, sit in silence for a few minutes (if you can) and listen to your breath. Let the wind spin the hamster-thoughts from your head and down the road. There is sorrow in the world, in your world. There is fury there, too. But this old Earth has seen so much violence and fury and sorrow. For today, I invite you to let it go and focus on the small and tangible graces before you. As Oriana proposed yesterday, practice kindness. Kindness to the Stranger. Kindness to the Other. Kindness to your Family, especially the ones who misunderstand and disrespect you. Kindness to the Earth. And give the Divines a break. For today, do your work, do it well, sleep the sleep of the just.
