Dear readers, as usual I’m going to take a break from this blog until the second week in January. In my tradition, this is a special time that I try to keep a bit separate from ordinary life, using it to reflect on the past and prepare for the challenges to come in the New Year. Whatever and however you celebrate, I wish you peace, joy, and strength for the tasks ahead. I am thankful for your presence on this journey with me.
Below is a quote from the medieval German mystic Meister Eckhart, that I hope will resonate with you as it does with me. Having just been through the great battle of Light and Dark in Susan Cooper’s fantasy series, it reminds me that seemingly opposing forces can come together when we settle into a quiet space in our hearts. I hope that we can all find that space, in this season of turning toward the light.
See you in 2023!
