For Fellow Beings in Nepal


We gaze upon you with sober hearts,
since we all are mortal, 
perched on the edge of 
our own tectonic plates,
looking into a future
all unknown
that we cannot foresee.

May all beings find refuge.
May all return to stillness,
security and peace.


I am back, kids, exhausted. The earthquake in Nepal is sobering. Tonight between 6 and 6:30 p.m. daylight saving time, the Power Path School of Shamanism is leading a meditation and invites us to rattle our rattles, drum our drums, light incense and sage and candles, and to envision, under the Himalayas, a grounding and steadying of the land, a return to stillness. 

Day 28
