Today we honor those who’ve served our country in the armed forces. My grandfather served in WWI. My father, uncle, and aunt served in WWII.
I honor and revere contribution, connection, and sacrifice. On this day, where I am, sun beams peace.
I round on this poem by Linda Hogan, “The Way In”.
The Way In
Sometimes the way to milk and honey is through the body.
Sometimes the way in is a song.
But there are three ways in the world: dangerous, wounding,
To enter stone, be water.
To rise through hard earth, be plant
desiring sunlight, believing in water.
To enter fire, be dry.
To enter life, be food.
