Blast From the Past - Girl Scouts Project

Found these clippings recently. So fun to see what I was a part of back then. I loved being a Girl Scout. We had a lot of fun in my troup.

Pandemic #coronavirus

What if you thought of it
as the Jews consider the Sabbath—
the most sacred of times?
Cease from travel.
Cease from buying and selling.
Give up, just for now,
on trying to make the world
different than it is.
Sing. Pray. Touch only those
to whom you commit your life.
Center down.
And when your body has become still,
reach out with your heart.
Know that we are connected
in ways that are terrifying and beautiful.
(You could hardly deny it now.)
Know that our lives
are in one another’s hands.
(Surely, that has come clear.)
Do not reach out your hands.
Reach out your heart.
Reach out your words.
Reach out all the tendrils
of compassion that move, invisibly,
where we cannot touch.
Promise this world your love–
for better or for worse,
in sickness and in health,
so long as we all shall live.

rainy day {haiku}

sprinkles on my face
I forgot my umbrella
quickly, don't get wet

toward my freedom

of the candles, sets the mood
time for connection

beach party {haiku}

fire on the beach
bare toes digging in the sand
celebrating life
