Blooming in the Whirlwhind

This is the urgency: Live! and have your blooming in the noise of the whirlwind. — Gwendolyn Brooks

Good News of the Day:
“‘Conduct your blooming in the noise and whip of the whirlwind.’ Strange message in a stranger place. I don’t know who said it, but this pronouncement suddenly appeared on a huge wall of the 59th St. subway tunnel connecting the Lexington Avenue trains to the N and R lines. For many months I’d passed the area, which was roped off and covered over with heavy paper — reconstruction in progress. What else is new in NYC! Then one fine day the plastic barrier was cut and the brown paper pulled down. There, gleaming in vivid colors, was a giant mosaic mural with a great scroll of a message running through it in a waving line that ran up and down from ceiling to floor and back.” Author Patty de Llosa shares this timely reflection on finding freedom within our constraints.

Be The Change:
“Learn to posses all things — your time, your pace of work, your moments of rest, your privacy — all.” Pierre Pradervand, from ‘Letter to A Friend in A Hurry’
