These times…Remember the Beauty

A wish for you in these beginning days of 2020…


“May you fall madly in love this year ..

In love with someone
Who unhinges your tired trajectory

In love with a spouse of several years
Who might be aching for lightning

In love with demanding children
And crazy relatives ..

In love with the particular pedigree
Of genius insanity
That has perhaps claimed you
In spite of your reluctance ..

And certainly in love with an animal
A cloud, a redwood,
The wild ..

.. These at least once a day.

May you fall in love
With this fragile jewel of a world

With hard work
Real learning
Real causes
And prayers.

May you fall in love
With wonder itself

With the grand mystery

With all that feeds you
In order that you may live ..

And with the responsibility
That that confers.

May you fall in love
With heartbreak
And seeing how it’s stitched
Into everything.

May you fall in love
With the natural order of things

And with tears
And humility.

May this be
A Magnificent year for you.

May you fall deeply

In Love.”
