Love Gram: Skirting the pit of despair06-07-2020
This has been a heart-wrenching week here in the U.S.
The world is upside down anyway, with the pandemic and all its resulting losses.
And now we have more unfathomable and systemic racism, brutality, violence, killing.
I have been teetering on the edge of despair.
But making today’s LoveGram to you was medicine for me.
I hope you’ll listen and find out why you helped me so much.
We have been, and we continue to be, in this TOGETHER.
We are walking through it with as much love and compassion as we can muster.
I still firmly believe that we are walking one another home. All of us, no matter who we are, what we look like, what we earn, what we believe.
We are a shared humanity and we can —and must — learn to love better.
I don’t have any answers. But I do believe in listening, learning, and growing.
Here’s your LoveGram for today — scroll down on that page, click play, listen, and consider: is love enough?
Thanks for being here.
It means so much to me to have you by my side.
Seek celebration — even in dark corners,
P.S. I’ve included the poem by Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer on the LoveGram page. You may want to print it out and send or share with someone you love.
P.P.S on that same page, 👆, I share the whimsical singing audio that Rosemerry sent. That audio is a perfect example of the power of “say it now.” Our expressions of love ripple out in unimaginable ways. Rosemerry had no idea last September that her simple, silly message would be exactly what I needed nine months later in a time of despair. Please don’t wait to express your love; say it now.
