Hold That Thought
This is no time for cavils about how you’re not religious and you don’t “do” prayer—let’s not even mention white light or healing circles. Everybody believes in hope, right? Everybody wishes their friends well, right? So do that, please. And do it a lot.
1. Here’s where we live. Imagine us safe and together within that circle. Imagine the circle strong and unbroken. Imagine the home we’ve made together—with all our silly, cheap souvenirs from trips here and there, our postcards attached to the fridge with magnets, our books, our dirty socks, the couch where we watch too much TV, the table where we dunk biscotti in our coffee every morning—imagine that environment uninterrupted and whole. (If a few people we don’t actually know get blessed inside the circle, hey: it’s for a good cause.)
2. Here are a couple of shots from our garden from last year. Your job is to imagine us sitting at the rickety little table in our tiny courtyard and looking at things like that again this year. Picture us on all the warm mornings and evenings to come, eating out there and working out there and just sitting there watching things grow and feeling lucky and grateful to be together.
With much love….
