Sun-Hot Days

 

“Stands the Sun so close and mighty –

That our Minds are hot.”

Emily Dickinson

 

Years ago, a slogan for Secret deodorant advertised being “cool, calm, and collected.” I wish that for you (not the deodorant but the sentiment) this week. Pause. Take a deep breath. Stay cool, calm, and collected. Nurture peace. Cultivate kindness. Carry the calm. (And remember to wear sunscreen.)

Nature of the week – from last month’s trip to Arizona:

Investing in Goodness

 

“Goodness is the only investment that never fails.”

Henry David Thoreau

 

Nurture peace. Cultivate kindness. Carry the calm.

And invest in goodness – love, grace, hope, and peace – for all.

Mercy, Pity, Love, and Peace

 

“For Mercy has a human heart,

Pity a human face,

And Love, the human form divine,

And Peace, the human dress.”

William Blake

 

May mercy overflow your heart,

may compassion wear your face,

may love take your form.

May you be clothed in peace.

Nurture peace. Cultivate kindness. Carry the calm.
