living in complication: mourning and celebrating at the same time

Even as my country is burning down and the planet is burning up, I sit in complexity.
Alongside the fear of the above, I glory in the small beautiful moments of daily life.
I wake up every morning to the warm smile of the one who loves me the most.
I drink hot, fresh coffee and revel in the deep purr of my cat nestled in my lap.
And when I can, I ride my bike.
Often, to nowhere in particular, but just around.
And when I do I celebrate small beauties.
Hope the coming weekend will give you all a chance to see the small beauties around.
May each one calm and gentle you, and give you a moment of grace between the scarier moments of the time and place in which we live.
Happy riding.
