This summer has been going by swiftly, full of both activity and stillness. As the days have gone by, I have had much opportunity for reflection amidst the flow. I have pondered the relationships between our inner and outer bodies, in mind, biological structure, and spirit, as often what is happening inside our bodies and minds is not registered outwardly.
I have thought about how we, as human entities, are connected not only to ourselves, but to each other, through family, friends, community, and the larger world, and beyond to the universe of which we are a part. The ripple effect is beyond words and knowing, and I continue to ponder...
I have been especially introspective on how we change as our bodies age, our children grow, and we are faced with the ups and downs of life, being challenged to meet the changes with the grace and tenacity so abundant in nature.
I am grateful for the reminders that surround, and for the presence of loved ones who bring home this privilege of being loved and supported. May we all continue to support one another in our journeys.
