Here’s what I’m hoping for more of in 2022.
In this photo, granddaughter Maggie embodies what I understand of awe: an overwhelming feeling of reverence, admiration, or wonder. I know I could use more of it in my life to take the place of the fear, despair, and grief that have dominated the past year (or two). I wish it for you, also.
*Afterthoughts are my blog version of a practice followed in some Quaker meetings. After meeting for worship ends, people continue in silence for a few more minutes during which they’re invited to share thoughts or reflect on the morning’s worship. I’ve adopted the form here for last-day-of-the-month brief reflections on headlines, quotes, books, previous posts, maybe even bumper stickers and refrigerator magnets.
