I finished it on a plane so I was snapping pictures of different pages where the words resonated deeply for me.. A few times, I just snapped a pic of my thumb - go figure.
I am searching on-line and in my computer for words that will distract me from the football that is currently playing. My boys, who both have very deep voices naturally, continue yell at the television in octaves two and three times higher than normal.

Tomorrow is the first Sunday of Advent. We light candles as we await the celebration of Christ's birth. Here's to being a member of the collective light - not a side, not a political party, not a religion, not the left or the right -
just the light -
"that we may show love in big and small ways' and that we could do so with the same involuntary effort we use to breathe.
to give life...
