… and remember how as a child your arms could rise and your palms turn out to bless the world. (Tobar Phadraic, David Whyte)
Variously, other forms of beauty, pain, some history perhaps. Through the eyes of a child, maybe wonder, fear/hesitation (or lack thereof), curiosity.
Hard to say. I live in a jumble of these, so need to be attentive within as to what is going on. I am, if nothing else, a work in progress.
First responders/health care workers and their families. Teachers working from home and parents who are working from home and teaching their children. Scientists working around the clock and around the world. Those with COVID 19 who are staying at home, those exposed and sheltering in place. The Gratefulness team who has built and continues to provide this place of connection, maybe especially important when we are home/alone. My family, for everything.
Just a little something today, as I remembered that song “We are the World”
We are the World 2020 Long Island Qua...

Let us put away unhealthy anger, blaming, finger-pointing, one-upmanship, and hate. Nobody benefits, nobody wins. Swords into plowshares, as the scriptures, the songwriters, the peace movements invite (or mandate).
What a great project, Kevin. Hope you share photo/s in the Lounge!
I understand that, Drew! Me, too.
Happy to find you here today, Cathy! Thank you for the photo – what a grand experience that must have been, seeing and feeling the flyover!
You are so welcome, dear Anna. These just stirred my heart. Blessings on your new adventure in vocalizing together in heart!
Thank you for being here as well, dear Ose. And for this beautiful picture!
Thank you so much, Polyanna. This is beautiful … copying it into my journal. Blessings on your day.
Many blessings to you, dear Ose. And thank you for your prayerful wishes for all of us here.
Dear Diane, your Spring walk to visit the horses, and enjoy all of nature yesterday, sounds lovely. It seems that you and your husband/family have done a good deal of considering when it comes to future steps. Yes, moving is quite a lot to think about and plan for (and do!), I hope and suspect that you will find your way to excitement about all of you being in the same area of the country when the time is right. I hold you in prayer, light and love as you continue to ponder and plan for your ...

Dear Anna, I resonate with what you say. I have been a bit of a germaphobe since I was extremely ill several years ago, so this has made this stronger. I, too, am always washing my hands! The U.S. has what feels like a jumble of messaging, maybe due to its size. And the politics. We will keep each other, our families and friends, those on the front lines of essential services, and those suffering, in prayer. Bless us all!
Dear CP, I’m glad I came back here later in the day and to find you here. Ursi was in my thoughts today. I appreciate your hopeful words in the midst of such worrisome times. May you and your family be safe and well, caring for one another and finding ways to enjoy each other’s company.
Thank you for this, Patjos. I’ve been enjoying Some Good News on you tube. Be well, friend.
Dear Palm, amidst the life changes throughout the world right now, a new and very significant change in your life is a lot to deal with! Your outlook of hope is a gift at such a time. May grace and love surround you as you step into your new reality in the days ahead.
