I hope you had a good time over the weekend.
I am noticing that these times make many moments more poignant.
I feel I treasure moments more, simple things like sunshine or friends or poems.
I am curious what other people treasure these days.
I want to share a poem with you that moved me recently.
And made me want to pay even more attention - to life, to moments of connection, ....
And I want YOU to share your inspiration with all of us.
These daily email care packets are now going to over 1,000 people in over 6 countries.
Please share your poem, your song, your art, your existential question, your quote, .... your inspiration these days.
Here is mine:
If You Want a True Friend by Mark Nepo Just open your hands and say, “I don’t know.” Say it softly and wait, so your other can see that you mean it. Give them a chance to drop what they think is secret. Let them come up with a cup of what matters from the spring they show no one. Let them sigh and admit that they don’t know either. Then you can begin with nothing in the way. Go on. Admit to the throb you carry in your heart. And let the journey begin. Excerpted from The Way Under the Way: The Place of True Meeting by Mark Nepo
