clear, bitterly cold, temps minus 22
Happy New Year!!!
The January newsletter was sent out today, and in it I talked about Michael and my disquiet about the economy, and the fact we knew were weren't alone. But that, oddly enough, in reflecting on what might happen in the coming year we came to the conclusion, yet again, that it didn't matter.
It's really forced us to look at what does. Health, friendships, community, belonging.
But more than anything - love.
And today I've received back so many deeply moving messages from people talking about their own feelings, their own situations. In language direct, elegant, simple, poetic and clear.
Who we are is not threatened. What we believe is not vulnerable. What matters is safe.
How powerful is that? How freeing is that?
How beautiful is that?
Thank you, everyone, for filling up my heart. I am indeed rich. No bailout necessary. Or wanted.
Blessings to all of you as you move into and through 2009. How lucky we are.
