  • Eric: My muscles are pleasantly burning from a lot of outdoor work today. I am feeling oddly pleased with the idea that Dragon docked with the ISS on my brother's birthday, because he was a space nerd.
  • Lion: I am in between multiple places; I am working on a database very vigorously. I have had numerous conversations about race conversation and writing. I feel like the race conversation has chilled the house. I feel the weight of it in the space. It was symbolic for me that there were buildings burning and SpaceX coming at the same time. I am excited about the spiritual quest and about the men's group conversation we just had. So much promise and hope and so much fear and despair. And I have to get my program written and out.
  • Ben: I have been in the North West Intentional Communities Spring Gathering all day on Zoom. And now I have two more meetings before I can get free of screen. I hope I don’t get too irritable because of the surplus of screen time.

Opening Blessing

The world is a big and complex place. There are so many contradictory things happening in it at the same time. We can't help but feel very complex emotions as we are faced with the many aspects of this world. There was a time when the world was only big, and so the complexity of it was difficult to detect for individuals, but now the world is also small, made small by powerful communication and transportation, and so all this complexity is flowing into us all the time. May we find ways to sit with all this complexity that foster our growth and do not crush our spirits. --Blessed Be
