We were in the middle of analyzing some news and data this week when one of my colleagues made a profound observation:
We are seeing how fragile our systems can be.
We are seeing how fragile our own well-being can be.
We are seeing how many are working in care of others every day.
We are seeing how time can be fleeting and endless, all at once.
We are seeing how solace can come in word or touch, in taste or sound, in movement or rest.
We are seeing how the unfurling of a leaf or blooming of a bud is miraculous.
Dear ones, essential elements are being revealed, like rocks at low tide.
Let us be safe. Let us be well. Let us be one. Let us take heart.
