What a beautiful thought

I spent a few hours in the greenhouse today with an old friend, and enjoyed reconnecting. We dumped the stuff I never got around to dumping in the fall, reorganized the space, and caught up a little. We’ve both gone through major job changes in the past months, and are navigating new things.

Just being outside, in the warm greenhouse, and being in the sun was so energizing and motivating. What a great day!

I came in and took a quick peek at Facebook, and saw this post by a friend on the West coast. Her oldest daughter is now a young woman and found this beautiful poem/writing by Ahmed Shihab-Eldin. I had to steal it and post on Facebook, and decided to share it here too. Admittedly this is all glass half full thinking, but isn’t it better to think that way? Hope you enjoy it as I did. Peace, Andria

And listened deeply. meditation, prayed, some danced. met their shadows. And the people began differently. people healed. And in the absence of people in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless the began to heal. And danger passed, people joined together again, grieved losses made choices, and dreamed new dreams, and created new to live in harmony and heal the fully, as they had been healed.'
