Sometimes it feels like the perfect storm, clouds opening up, rain drenching me to my bones, and me, shaking my fist at the sky…or at some sarcastic colleague or maniacal politician.

Every once in a while, though, I have the patience to simply observe. Not at my own risk and not risking anyone else’s safety or case, but just because there’s enough patience to be with whatever is happening, and not react, not get angry, not hide.

I feel like we need this kind of patience now, in our world. And like we’re going to need a whole lot more of it in days to come. What about you – do you agree?
