First day of winter!

In this season of transition, and birth, I am with these words:


"Before you know kindness as the deepest thing inside,

you must know sorrow as the other deepest thing.

You must wake up with sorrow.

You must speak to it till your voice

catches the thread of all sorrows

and you see the size of the cloth.


Then it is only kindness that makes sense anymore."


Naomi Shihab Nye from her poem "Kindness"
