At the End of the Day:
A Mirror of Questions
What dreams did I create last night?
Where did my eyes linger today?
Where was I blind?
Where was I hurt without anyone noticing?
What did I learn today?
What did I read?
What new thoughts visited me?
What differences did I notice in those closest to me?
Whom did I neglect?
Where did I neglect myself?
What did I begin today that might endure?
How were my conversations?
What did I do today for the poor and the excluded?
Did I remember the dead today?
Where could I have exposed myself to the risk of something different?
Where did I allow myself to receive love?
With whom today did I feel most useful?
What reached me today? How deep did it imprint?
Who saw me today?
What visitations had I from the past and from the future?
What did I avoid today?
From the evidence - why was I given this day?
Why was I given this day? For each, of us, each evening, perhaps a different answer. Today, I saw the first tulip in my yard, a deep purple one, and all four maple trees are fluffing out and there are daffodils everywhere. It is spring and I am given the opportunity to observe, feel, partake, to burst my own seed as it comes to root, stem, flower and fruit.
I know many who are struggling tonight. Prayer and Peace for us All!
