This has been a hard year for all with unavoidable obstacles. We have wondered together if there would be Light beckoning to grant some reprieve during these holy days and holiday season. There was and is but we do not let up on our vigil until given word it is so.
The journey has taken us through some dark places but we have found Light as we are bent to do. We have come thus far and now keep our guard up until our commitments walk with us.
We miss the little rewards we needed to break from the work of dailyness that bowed us down even in normal times. During the health crises and political turmoil without them, our dispositions have been tested. But we are a dependable people and wish to prove we are equal to the task. Our progeny will one day question us and ask what did we do? . . .
Our answer will be. . . our very best.. . .
The Learning Place. . . .
Do you not think
that where you go
at night is the place
where you are healed?
to a morning full
of exuberance, to face
another day to fight clean?
For those things you see
at night, every time
you close your eyes and trust
you will find your way. . .
to the place you know best
that heals the wounds
tearing you apart . . .the who you are,
in still this best of all learning places. . .
to find you do not run away. . . .
and with courage stay the course.
