Still Remain

Since the shift in reality exacting by the turn of the decade,

After opportunists collude to sabotage systems with malfunctions and hollow promises,

After 20 years of unexpected tragedy raise healing spaces between lingering clouds of memory,

Today, at this precise time of noon, I stop my walk to probe the skies, to feel echoes of a past that hold all dear and earn the resonance–the moment of unity–in the blossoms of the crocus that welcome my gaze.

Quietly seeking to meet Trust wherever Life leads, I understand service as key to gratitude and balance. Freshwater woodlands evoke the most serenity in me wherever they're found. I've shared space & time on terrain of my Ligurian and Oscan ancestors, feeling their souls guiding me, especially in silent contemplation. Today, after over thirty years of engagement in programs for children, secondary, university and adult learning, the gifts life brings on Long Island's Matinecock-Algonquin earth, I try to give & receive with grace.
