What do we do for ourselves + each other when we’re in this place?

I happened across a short poem by Naomi Shihab Nye which seems to be a bit of an antidote to the suffering in the world. Her gentle nudging offers possibility.

I hope you’ll listen and let me know what you think by commenting on the blog. (If you’re reading this via a post that was delivered to your email in-box + the audio player isn’t showing, please click here to listen.)
