This time of year – the end of the calendar year – always feels quiet, and sacred, to me. Maybe the holidays, maybe being with family, and this year, like the last two, also feels sacred and precious because things are once again, precarious.

Last week I was wondering about all of that in terms of inter-connection. This week I’m wondering about it in terms of connection to self.

Is it possible to tap into our own inner connection? Is it possible to get a little more connected not only to each other, but also to ourselves? As we do this with one another, seeing each other as beloved, can we also see ourselves the same way?
