with cake


Today we will listen about dreams of the most important kind.
And, I will shed some tears.
And, then we will celebrate a life of

bravery
compassion
equity
empathy
kindness
fortitude.

With cake.

And, candles. And, maybe some dancing.

I will feel hopeful (about the hardest things to feel hopeful for) because the alternative doesn't work. Not now. It won't get us anywhere.

Then, I will pause to remember how far we have come and how much farther there is to go.

What will you do on this day? I'd love to know.

  2. Wonderful. That was me at the Crocker Farm MLK breakfast - singing "We Shall Overcome" with Peggy from down the street, and shedding tears. I love that you had cake! xo
