As winter, and so much else
winds to an ending
we begin the work

to forge paths back into the world
to be able to walk out without worry
to travel and explore new places
new thoughts, new ways of living

we must be gentle and patient
give grace to the vulnerable of body and feeling
as we each find our own pace in the years ahead

  1. We need to find a new way of being in so many areas………sadly, in Canada right now, we have bad actors who are not understanding even the basic civilities. Sigh.

  2. I think the old normal is long gone, we just need to find a path forward even if it is in small steps but, the world is forever changed. There is no going back and I don’t know what normal is anymore.
