If you don’t like the road you’re walking, start paving another one.

Dolly Parton

Maybe it’s a road we don’t like. Maybe we need a long bridge made of wood and strewn together by rope. This is how 2020 feels to me. Forget the sturdy concrete ground- at best we get a flimsy support beneath our feet.

Even after the leaves have fallen and the color has faded the mountains beckon. They remind us that what is will not be and what has been will leave its mark. Together, past and present, make life.

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine slows into trees.

Sometimes, a break away allows for newfound gratitude for simply what is in front of us now.

Today, I’m grateful for friends.

As this week begins, I hope to recognize the challenges as questions that can shed light on what lies ahead and how to best arrive.

I hope that for you, too.

Days just fly by. Here we are in October. I barely blinked and September is passed.

A new month. A new season. A new time to embrace the mystery of grace.

Approach every conversation as if it’s an adventure, because it can be if you listen.

Kate Murphy

Sometimes, all I can do is simply listen. Often I don’t know the answer and the solution isn’t clear. Making sure someone feels heard at times is all that is needed. It always is the easier path and more times than not, I learn something I didn’t know prior to the conversation.
