As I sit at my computer committing these reflections to paper, the most recent event that has changed our world forever swirls in my body, mind, heart, spirit, and soul. I sit in solitary thought and solidarity of thought. I pray my personal prayer and our public prayer. I wait for individual return to freedom of movement and communal movement in freedom. I welcome virtual connectivity and long for real time/space human interaction. Yes, the most recent event that has changed our world forever swirls in my body, mind, heart, spirit, and soul. I imagine we meet one another in that swirl several times each day.

By the next newsletter we will have embraced or denied how we choose to reframe and recreate our lives.
