    Thank you for sharing these words of poetry. Words are keepsakes, keeping us close in good times and distressing ones.

    Here are words of encouragement I recently shared with clinicians who care for my family: "Thank you for the outstanding care you always provide to our family. During this time of the coronavirus pandemic, I'd like to also thank you for heroically being of service to all of your patients. Please take care of yourself and your loved ones."

    And here are words from a different era that my wife, Mangla, shared with me earlier this week:

    “And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and grew gardens full of fresh food, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently.

    And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.

    And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed.”
