i believe

in the powerful gesture of carrying a reusable mug

in a new story

a better story

in riding bicycles

and not owning what we don’t need

local book stores

and telling our children the truth, always, even when it’s difficult

in unseen acts of integrity

light rail

dark skies

the acting of viola davis.  the calligraphy of tich nhat hanh.  the painting of mary cassatt.

eating slowly while sitting down

sitting down

standing up

the innate human capacity to live in tune with nature

magic

spirits

our future.
