Hello. It's been a while, and a wild 2020 for the world so far... I recently sent a similar email to my subscribers, but I wanted to share the same sentiment with whomever visited BetterBrighterEasier... Wishing you and yours health, safety, peace, and good laughs to get you through this stressful time. Interesting that it has taken a pandemic for so many to realize that we always have and always will all breathe the same air.
As many weeks of isolation, self-distancing, and hopefully, productive reflection have gone by for each of us, if you haven't yet read this poem, or even if you have, it is worth noting. My friend, Michelle, shared it with me, and I want to share it with you! Hope it leaves you with a smile, and food for thought.
~ My Best Always, Luci
" And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently.
And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.
And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed."
