Meanwhile….today appears to be a holiday in the USA.

Guess what I’m doing, just for fun?

The Work!

I love investigating concepts about holidays, vacations, humanity, cultures, groups of people, dates, days and all I think they mean.

My grandmother died on USA Independence Day, 1986.

My son was born on Independence Day, 1994.

My son’s grandpa was born on Independence Day, 1924.

For me it is a day about birth and death. And I love that it’s an actual holiday.

I notice a story is born, a story then dies.

Then it reappears again a year later! Psyche!

Independence from the story, dependence on the story, independence again.

If you have a stressful thought about a date, including today, and what people are doing or not doing on it (or what YOU are doing or not doing on it)….

….you may want to begin with inquiring.

Is it true?

Are you absolutely sure?

Who would you be without your belief?

Can you turn your thought around to the complete opposite?

Can you expand beyond your ideas of right and wrong, and find a place within that’s independent of your stories?

A natural place, in us all, beyond thought.

The Peace of Wild Things by Wendell Barry
When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
Much love,
