A collection of impressions:
Feeling : Quiet. Calm. Reflective. The rush of sudden repairs and reorganizations of this past week are past and we’re rediscovering routine.
Thinking : About the books I’m reading currently, especially The War on Boys – which rings disturbingly true to me as I watch the people around me build a culture in which men and boys are ‘canceled,’ dismissed, demeaned, or neglected. Thinking of ways to build up my boy in a world that doesn’t want him. Thinking of ways to build up my daughter to find her strength is love not in the denigration of others.
Watching : My two loves playing wild in the sunlight and soft air of spring.
Planning : for midsummer Communions, dance recitals, garden-building, new pigs, and upcoming visits from family and friends.
Praying : To the Three-Handed Virgin and the Infant of Prague.
Loving : all the green-growing world around me! The trees have finally woken up. The ferns are unfurling, the flowers are just beginning to remember themselves, and the whole woods is shifting and shaking off the cold at last!
Tell me, how are you today?
