End of the Road

Thanks to my husband’s regular reminders, I’m aware of the phenomenon whereby we selectively register information that reinforces our existing views. Perhaps I am guilty of that. I’m the first to admit that I am skeptical of gadgets and the way that our over-reliance on technology distorts our experience.

The World is Made in Belonging

  It’s over a hundred degrees today. Apart from a bit of time spent watering some seedlings early this morning, I’ve been indoors hiding from the heat. Even the dogs show no interest in venturing out. I find myself appreciating the stillness and familiarity of my indoor surroundings. But it’s more than gratitude for a cool haven. I find myself resting in a feeling of comfort to do with the way that everything is holding me, and holding everything else together. I notice how everything...
