It′s started off rocky, and my heart is feeling heavy for reasons both external and internal. Familiar questions echo: bouncing from the global to the personal.
Why are our societal systems often so cruel to the most vulnerable, the most innocent?Why do we so often hurt the ones we love?
And me: Why can′t I always be direct, and open?
Why does the past creep up and put its grubby little fingers over my eyes, my mouth, my ears? Why do I often run when I need to face things?
So much is born in seeds of fear. This year I will do what I did last year. My best.
Sometimes good, sometimes, well, not so good.
Focusing on learning, and growing, and cultivating more love, more understanding.
More forgiveness when we fail, as we will. More celebration when we succeed in loving kindness, joy, compassion…let’s do this.
Let′s grow a better world, together.

You’re so cool!
And you are both cool and kind. A magic combo!
Feeling much the same, Elaine. Here in Arizona, it’s heartbreaking to see what the asylum seekers are going through and the hate that is hurled at the vulnerable. 😦 Thank you for your thoughts/feelings. It ripples outward. ❤
Sending love and light your way. Thanks for reading and spreading peace and awareness the way you do so well.
