Morning Thoughts

We rise in the dark these days, and then, like a warm hand, morning brings light.  As I've said, I love this time of year, love the movement toward the solstice, then, the pause, and the return of light. 

There are so many things I might say.  I've been busy processing all that has occurred in Newtown, hoping I offer support to those I love around what can only be felt, absorbed, moved through.  We are a collective.  I feel that more and more.   

This morning, I read these words of Mary Oliver.   It is time we all begin to notice, exclaim with wonder, and proclaim.  Perhaps, there, we shine a light on insecurity, confusion, hatred, judgment, and fear.   

Instructions for living a life:
Pay attention.
Be astonished.
Tell about it.
- Mary Oliver
