It seems impossible to speak or think about anything else right now. The news is too full of horrific loss and our hearts are too broken. I won’t claim to have a clue about how to fix anything – as if there is a fix – but I know I’m not alone in believing in the healing power of nature. In cathartic walks in the rain. In the deep inhale of a favorite fragrance. In a handful of potting soil. In the obvious preciousness of all life.

Are you finding solace? Where?

  1. Thanks for the post acknowledging the struggling. Still searching for those moments, and finding them in the Christmas celebrations here and there.

    Susan, I hope you stay surrounded in Christmas cheer. Be well. -kris

  2. The only thing that works for me is DOING something. I work at our local food pantry and have been putting in extra time. It’s work worth doing and it keeps my mind off things I can’t figure out and certainly can’t control.

    Pat, By occupying your hands and mind that way, so many more benefit than just yourself. I salute you. -kris
