Textling #65

Sometimes the world meets you were you are. A course of guided meditations for folk who live with constant pain addresses those who sit or walk, and those who cannot rise. A blogging artist reads her posts in sprightly voice and stretches to a wider crowd. The audience at a TED Talk sign their appreciation as noise is agony to many people with M.E. (this made me cry). The day after the inauguration (and what a day!) a virtual women’s march joins the protests taking place all over the world. I found out too late and in a much too tired state, but knowing made me feel connected, counted even. 

I commend, and turn to calibrate my gratitude. It’s that simple: acknowledgement amounts to affirmation.
