The Summer of Braids

This is the summer of braids and bare feet;
We manage somehow to survive the heat.
Maybe some shifts in the shimmering line
Assure us we’re well, and all will be fine.
Maybe it’s magic, and maybe it’s not,
But suddenly things don’t seem quite so hot.
We look in the mirror, knowing we must,
And find we have enough faith to trust
That whatever comes again we can face
As long as our fingers reach out for grace.

    GRACE. May there be more of it.

  7. Sadly so many of us around the world think that the world revolves around them and will break every rule and sanction because they can. It is winter in Australia now and hopefully when that is over we’lll see if we eliminate Covid for good.

  8. A good way to live through Summer. Happy Sunday


  9. You made me smile, and possibly a glimmer of hope poked through.

  10. we look in the mirror knowing we must – sigh! This is a good mantra for this summer.
