Good Monday Morning, Dear Poets and Friends

“BE LIKE THE BIRD who, pausing in her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing she hath wings.” Victor Hugo …



Keeping our spirits up: it’s not about blind optimism or heroics. It’s practical. It’s about protecting our autoimmune systems. Fear, anxiety and stress compromise our physical health whether or not we are immune-compromised. In doing our best to maintain our physical and mental health we remain assets in this pandemic, people who don’t – at the very least – add to the systemic health crisis burden – and who can be available to help our families, friends, and communities. Do your best to find joy in this Monday! Celebrate the gift of life and another day. Celebrate the lives of those who have left or are leaving before us. They and you are valued. Love –
