This is a day in which nothing seems like it could possibly be enough. The donation is probably too small. The facebooks likes not numerous enough. Church not enough, social action not enough, loving kindness meditation not enough. And yet, and yet, today I took more actions towards a better world than I did yesterday. Tomorrow I’ll try again. I”ll make another ripple, maybe two. They’ll all add up. I think you know where this is going.

“You do not need to know precisely what is happening, or exactly where it is all going. What you need is to recognize the possibilities and challenges offered by the present moment, and to embrace them with courage, faith and hope.”  Thomas Merton
