Worth a thousand words.
I’ve been searching for a symbol for today. Something that inspires joy, generates whimsy, promotes contemplation, revels in contradiction, and conceives future creativity. All hope was lost, or so I thought, until I remembered the little photographic masterpiece Geoff created yesterday.
For your consideration and meditation:
As you contemplate this image, surely you are contemplating peace and all things right and good.
In my attempts to combat depression I have been trying to step back and gain perspective on my life and life in general. Along the way I’ve come across an unexpectedly light, bright, and thought-provoking blog that I’d like to recommend. If you have the time, please check out Jason Mraz’s blog Freshness Factor Five-thousand. Sometimes political, sometimes ludicrous, always positive and life-affirming, Mraz’s blog is an excellent mind holiday.
In other news, if you’ve been watching the news, I’ve been following the situation in Egypt pretty closely. A former student of mine, Kent, has been spending his junior year of high school in Cairo. Kent and his classmates are supposed to be evacuated sometime in the next few days (may have already been evacuated). If a blog can be a prayer, then this one goes out to Kent and his family in the hope of a safe journey home.
Until we speak again, readers, I hope this week brings you symbols of peace, humor, and soul-stirring joy.
