  1. I’m sharing an old poem this weekend, from the beginning of April. Since then, I seem to have got used to this restricted lifestyle, writing poetry, reading, and walking round the garden, watching birds, deer and cats.

  2. Another powerful and inspiring essay, Brendan. Pandemic as gas peddle, oppositions, vast and particular. Wow! Where can I enter this? Lately a different awareness has come to me–things that make me hopeful. Groan. In the face of your writing they may just be distractions. I was in a clearness group the other day where I chose to focus on the positive, and the witnesses were so stunned that they had NO clarifying questions! I had made a split second decision–that my mere 20 minutes were too short to talk about what was troubling me and needing solutions, so I simply flipped the script to talk about what was short enough to fit my allotted time–good things, like being more open to God’s love and feeling it emanating back out again through my heart. Let that experience back up against the physical realities I have seen and know about, and I know it’s is only a craziness that helps me stay sane! It can’t be touched or wrapped and given as protective gear. Hmm.
