It’s the last Friday of the month; the 2nd time the We Are the World Blogfest is spreading a little light to alleviate the darkness in which we find ourselves.
Ongoing and recent events leave me constantly troubled not only for what’s going on in our neck of the woods but all over our precious planet. There is no need to itemise them. Here in South Africa we are rebelling against all that is corrupt and we’re pulling together on all levels not seen in a long time.
There are so many stories of people and communities coming together in the face of tragedy. And if not in tragedy, then in all sorts of small, kind, gracious and meaningful ways which, like a pebble tossed into a stream, continues making ripples, spreading ever outwards..
Here’s a map of the world from a very ancient atlas. I occasionally put my hands over this map and ask for healing of our world –
The photo below is one I took a while back of the garden at night where the little solar lamp in the centre throws off shards of light.
I’m imagining that the lamp is each one of us, casting light into the darkness.
May these circles of light encompass each and every one of us, Mother Nature and all her creatures, our planet.
that shows love, humanity and brotherhood in action.
There’s a crack, a crack, in everything, that’s how the light gets in. Leonard Cohen.
Thank you for reading. May the Force be with you.
