May We Find The Grace Images of Beauty … Some In Rough Places

“To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance.

To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you.

To seek joy in the saddest places.

To pursue beauty to its lair.

To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple.

To respect strength, never power.

Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away.

And never, never to forget.”

~ Arundhati Roy

This has been a hard week in the collective. Times have always been hard for so many, and yet there is always beauty. 

May we look of the Grace in ourselves & each other in this rare & nuanced life.
