a mama bear’s prayer

This is from Elizabeth Lesser’s brilliant book called Broken Open. She was referring to the anger that activists carry around with them.  That whole if you aren’t outraged, you aren’t paying attention thing?  Well, what happens if you are outraged all the time?   It is hard to turn it off, but we must try to in order to save ourselves.

So my heartfelt Sunday wish for you is that you find that quiet joy today.  I’m sitting on my couch with a coffee and a stack of newspapers by my side.  Miles Davis is playing on the record player.   That’s at least a good start.
