Let’s take a pause. A moment to breathe. A moment to orient ourselves. We’ve had our worlds turned inside out and upside down and then some and yet in this small space between what has been and what is yet to be there is still a lightness of being to be found – and for that I’m grateful.
Let’s take a step back from noise, fear and stress
Let’s unwind the little knots we’ve tied inside ourselves, make a little room for hope
For each other
I’ve been on this kick lately where I call people on the phone instead of texting or emailing them and have this to report – no one answers their phones anymore. And honestly, I’ve been guilty of this myself.
When I leave a voicemail I say, “I called because I miss you and wanted to hear the sound of your human voice.” Sometimes people call back, sometimes they don’t. Sometimes they text me and thank me for the call.
We’re being forced to separate in a time when we are craving connection but maybe easing our distress isn’t that complicated.
Humans have always drawn comfort from each other, and even though our ability to gather this year will take some odd forms, let’s try and connect in whatever way we can.
And as always, thank you all for your ongoing support of NBB.
It’s an honor to be part of your lives.
Wishing you joy and peace,
