Do not try to save
the whole world
or do anything grandiose.
Instead, create
a clearing
in the dense forest
of your life
and wait there
until the song
that is your life
falls into your own cupped hands
and you recognize and greet it.
Only then will you know
how to give yourself
to this world
so worth of rescue.
—Martha Postlewaite

It’s hard to know what we can do to help the state of this crippled world. Frustration, fear, feelings of futility fill the space around us as we live in the wake of current world news. What to do? What do we contribute to improve the space around us, in and around our community?

In the “dense forest of my life”, I will offer my interpretation of beauty and keep shining a little light into the dark times, waiting and listening for your song!
