An old, red brick house
Sitting small on scrabbley grass
It was home to me
Source Of All Blessings
You bless us with time
to reconnect to self, family,
Friends, purpose, and meaning.
May I fill this lacuna
with memories, reflections, insight
love, generosity, and renewed commitment
to spending more of my life
doing what makes a positive, generative difference
and less doing what is wasteful or detrimental.
Thanks be, blessed be, simply be.*
