H E L L O - this rainbow 🌈 was a #mydailychroma outtake (from @dharmatradingco ‘s window). the beauty of the colors and the simplicity of the gesture... i keep re looking at this photo. i keep thinking about how exhausting and surreal life seems right now. there is much good - people getting married, new gardens next door, art - there is always art, light bulb moments for my students - but there is also a lot of darkness - hurricanes, climate change, supreme court nominees... . yesterday i had a mile long to do list but my body simply would not allow it. i had to lay down for a couple of hours and just rest. a body is a wonderous machine, but we can only push so far. and in the wise words of a great grandparent of mine 45 is not 25 and i can’t just keep on keeping on the way i used to. . i think, too, the onslaught of traumatic news just makes it that much harder to move through life. as i converse with friends about this we all look at each other with similar exasperation in our eyes. i’m glad to know that i am not alone, but i worry how we get thru this. how we might be going past a point of reasonable return. i long for a sense of balance. i search for moments of calm. i hug dearly the ones i love. . you ?
