of Christmas lights, protests & police

There is tension in the air

It stifles the holiday cheer

The lights are bright

But the chants are louder

“We can’t breathe!”

!!!Under Restoration!!!

IMG_1655The Mount Vernon monument is undergoing restoration this year, and though I walk past it nearly everyday, when I did so yesterday I was struck by a thought. Wouldn’t it be amazing if humans underwent restoration too, the kind of intentional introspection that leads to renewal and refinement of life goals, skills, relationships, lifestyles, or even how we dress and what we eat? Albeit we’d need multiple restorations over our lifetimes. Savor the little things in life and keep the stress at bay. Cheers!
