We are here

In the face of overwhelming loss

Loss of life and livelihood, of routine, of expectation

We find it so hard to turn inward, and remember:

We are here.

We are one.

We are here.


The little poem above came to me this morning, after a(nother) night of “pandemic dreaming.” I share it today, along with the wisdom of Pema Chodron to “start where you are:” in fear, sadness, joy, peace, anxiety, love, resistance, acceptance. Only start.
