This morning in the quiet looking into the eye of a rose – it occurred to me if ever there was a time to practice “be the change you want to see in the world” it’s now. Regardless of what this is, when it will end, and why it’s happening – be the change You want to  see in the world. For me today that is listening more than I speak, seeing the fear underneath the anger and panic and being available to the people in my life today.  In my small circle. Our circles will be very small as we a do our part to contain the virus. Can we also contain the fear? Inside of the reality of what is happening and without being dismissive of the pandemic, how we respond to the fear around us – impacts how far it will spread. Like the butterfly flapping it’s wings little currents of air move little currents of air that can cause a hurricane on the other side of the world. It does matter. Be peace.
