American Scenes

It has been quite a week here in Boston. Disbelief, shock, anger, sadness, despair and finally – relief and joy. Everyone is struggling to understand. At times, I have had a difficult time staying focused on my work and to be productive, yet I have had to find ways to carry on. As much as the news says we are “Boston Strong”, etc., the fabric of my life has been torn in ways I can not completely see or understand and when it is stitched back together, I will be different. My Mom shared a poem with me that I have found to be very helpful.

It is called, Look to This Day.

Look to this day
for it is life
the very life of life.

In its brief course lie all
the realities and truths of existence
the joy of growth
the splendor of action
the glory of power.

For yesterday is but a memory
And tomorrow is only a vision.
But today well lived
makes every yesterday a memory
of happiness
and every tomorrow a vision of hope.

Look well, therefore, to this day….

~ ancient Sanskrit poem ~

Unbowed… Unbroken…

I can’t help thinking of the irony of the coinicdence – Patriots Day.

I am numb, angry and am having a very hard time comprehending – understanding…

Thank you all for your expressions of concern and support.

We shall overcome…

Combine the pace and intensity of my days with this morning’s dreary gray skies, I find myself dreaming of of warm summery days and gentle breezes. The smell of green grass and long lazy vistas.

Have  wonderful weekend!

Cheers,
