life is our teacher…

“There is only one teacher.

What is that teacher?

Life itself.”


Charlotte Joko Beck

this moment.

so much happening.

pain, grief.

empathy, courage.

cruelty, indifference.

tenderness, beauty.

joy, laughter.

tears of both.

what is life teaching?

where do we sit?

what are our words?

where do we call home?

what is our practice,

as the world

changes seasons
