Awaken

 

The last days of spring have slipped away setting the stage for the farms and gardens to awaken. The efforts of those who till the soil are beginning to bear fruit, literally and figuratively; farmers’ markets offering early yields, flower beds and planters awash in color and texture. This bounty is realized only after […]

Soul Family

I attended a funeral today and was brought to tears not out of grief but out of joy for the love connecting members of one soul family.

My dear friend’s 19 year old niece Carolyn died last month after battling cancer. Soon after, her mom, finding comfort sitting in her daughter’s room, found a list of life goals that Carolyn had compiled.

Paradoxes

Paradoxes all around . . .

I was driving to the train station during a recent snow storm and saw a man wrapped in a blanket standing outside his tent under a highway overpass. I gasped and uttered “he doesn’t need to be there.” Having worked on behalf of the homeless for half of my […]
