Thaw

A lot of us have felt like our hearts are in a deep freeze over the these last few months as we’ve looked on in grief and horror at the massive lack of empathy, compassion, understanding, and care for our common humanity from the centers of America’s political power. This weekend the temperatures rocketed to near 70 degrees, (good thing we don’t need science!) making a glorious mess out of a stubborn, serious New England February.

The thaw was welcome. It was a relief in so many ways–to soften, to yield, to let ourselves crack and give and remember that a hard heart requires twice as much effort to keep rigid than it does to stay open.
