Today I listened to Krista Tippett’s interview with Resmaa Menakem. It’s an important resource to help us understand our own bodily responses to race, culture, and fear. I give you a taste, a body practice to help in transformation.

Tonight Steve and I returned to the 1964 movie Dr. Strangelove. It’s worth a re-visit. Meant to be a farce, this article shows how close it was to the truth. We’re living in strange times. May we learn bodily practices to help us anchor and release our fears to bring forth the changes we want to see in the world.

As evening continues, I‘m listening to crickets, thinking of Issa’s haiku translated by Jane Hirshfield.

On a branch

floating downriver,

a cricket, singing.

And so we are, and can be.

Open and see
