WHERE COMPASSION AND UNITY DWELL

© 2011 Howard McQueen

 

As we capture and focus our attention

  into the service of navigating toward unity,

  we begin to meet in the vast field [1]

  where compassion and love dwell.

 

As we learn to nourish family and community,

  we begin to tend to the soil

  fertilized and nourished by our shared, core values.

 

As we learn to heal ourselves

  and hold this healing space and environment for…

Stella’s Life

I've been remiss in posting this on the Asheville Sangha blog site, but thought I should do it in order to help eliminate any confusion about having a baby on the way...



Shelby was admitted to the hospital on December 20th after she started feeling chest, back and arm pains.  Since she was 23 weeks pregnant, we called the OB on call who  confirmed that we needed to come to the hospital for some testing.  She was diagnosed with HELLP syndrome, where the blood platelet count drops and… Continue

 reveal their exoskeletons,

 rooted in nothing but thin air.
