On Day 2 of this video series, Thanksgiving, I felt so in love with my life: my husband, the beauty of where we live, the woods, the mushrooms I harvested, even the weeds.
And then I woke up. To a pain in my ankle so sharp I could barely hobble home.
I sat on the couch icing my foot, realizing I’d left something out of the picture: the very real suffering in the world.
Pain is a great teacher. To be in the moment. To breathe. To appreciate what is.
If you’ve ever experienced pain, suffering, feeling loss or discouraged, there’s a spontaneous improv song here for you.
Love, love, love.
