I am signing up to do meaningful community projects as a volunteer.
I am also making an effort to have more good food on hand to prepare and eat at home with my husband. While working I didn’t bother much with that, and ate on the run (if at all). It feels good to prepare and eat good food!
Having goals/a to-do list
Fall and how it is showing us the beauty i.n letting go .
I am thinking that “meaning making” is a reductive process. I am in an expansive mode at the moment, so it is more about paying attention to what is. An exploration of the hierarchy of Heaven and Earth.
Closeness and intimacy with my dear ones with whom I am right now, where there is softness, honesty and space for the wrongs we all do, and equally for the good we all do leads to be intensely aware of our shared vulnerability. To take care even more and to love deeply.
Rest, reflection, realization, recouping!
Helping others with what they have to do. Being of assistance.
A renewed relationship with my Sister, who was “lost” for many years.
Myself. I am trying to heal & care for myself, after being my mother & brother’s only caregiver for 1.5 years. Having been displaced from my home on the West Coast, I am back. I need lots of tending to, as does my “home”.
Dear pkr, welcome back. May healing and care be with you. I will keep you in my prayers. Wishing you a good nights sleep and may you wake up refreshed to meet the new day, in faith.
Dear Ose, thank you for your kind thoughts & prayers. Peace & Love to you from a very windy, rainy No. California. 🙏🌨💨❤️🙏
Hosting a gratefulness gathering which begins Monday!
Supporting smart young climate justice champions in words, actions, money.
Life herself. Every day new and gift.
Working with people as a team to make a better school. Connecting with and enjoying my family.
. . . in a way,
the dying of my mother in law,
which brings me to an increased presence to my own life,
and connecting with her
in these last moments . . .
an awareness of the cycle of all things,
at one with the Universe . . .
bringing to the surface
what is important and what is not . . .
Sparrow, I am in a similar position. Your words have special resonance. I am glad your mother in law is peaceful and you have these insights as you and she journey through this process 🙏
I am grateful for this . . .
I am sorry for your loss, sparrow. Gentle blessings and peace to you and your family.
dear Pilgrim . . .
she is still on the precipice,
but is at peace…
Always my children and grandchildren. Our dog. Because I have Covid, and am now finished with quarantine, I hope to help others with making meals when they are sick with the meal train others have helped me with, as well as walking another persons dog when they are sick, just as others did for us. In helping others, I bring a new kind of meaning to my life. I thought I was too old anymore to make meals for others or help them in any way, but one of the “helpers” I have had is a young mother, and has started asking me questions about how to be a good mother to her baby…she had a traumatic childhood. I will offer what guidance I can, and that brings about another meaning to life now…I will be the “helper” when asked!
Routine, work, calmness
Simultaneous self cultivation and giving of my perspective and support to others – that has been the prevailing theme for most of my life and expect these two priorities will continue to be most meaningful and important – although expect the relative focus on each will continue to vary over time.
