Truth and Reconciliation

truth
comes at a cost

honour
those who have already paid

respect
the process

healing
takes time

forgiveness
takes even longer

 

In Canada, September 30 marks the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. This day honours the Survivors of residential schools, the children who never returned home, and their families and communities.
Orange Shirt Day is an indigenous-led grassroots commemorative day intended to raise awareness of the individual, family and community inter- generational impacts of residential schools and to promote the concept of “Every Child Matters”.

Mondays are just young Fridays

Each morning, every morning, there is time to consider plans for the day, for the weeks, months, perhaps years ahead.
   Formulated in quiet thought, these goals might not be concrete, or complete, but they are personal reminders of what can be achieved over time.
   If I write them down they seem real; more than dreams and wishes. Maybe even more than I should ask for, or more than I am allowed?
   Only time will tell.

Enjoy

Comfort food,
as the temperature dips.

Favorites.

Restaurant special,
mom’s recipe or
make it up as you go.

Is there a better day
than today?

Be nourished.

Take the time
to enjoy.

Remember the leftovers.

I'm like a pencil;
sometimes sharp,
most days
well-rounded,
other times
dull or
occasionally
broken.
Still I write.

_MG_3814 - Version 2

Ten reminders from
last night’s lunar eclipse.

– Gravity has a role to play, and
   each of us has a place in the
   universe, but there are times
   when things line up and, even
   despite distance, the results
   are astounding.

– Things take time, but if you are
   patient, you will see results.

– You have to look up, or you
   will miss a few miracles.

– There are 24 hours in a day.
   Some days are brighter than
   others, and sometimes clouds
   get in the way, but you still need
   to make the most out of every
   hour. Time is finite; though your
   enjoyment of time need not be.

– If you are going to stay up late,
   make it worthwhile.

– Entertainment and amusement
   is not always man made.

– Some times you just have to sit
   and allow time to pass. You
   cannot rush and, if you try not
   to, you will enjoy the moments.

– Don’t expect things to be what
   they are built up to be, accept
   them as they are and see the
   beauty that is there.

– A camera can capture the
   moment, but your mind
   holds the memory.

– Some things are worth waiting    for.
