Other news pales this morning, in light of the horror and devastation caused by the earthquake in Haiti. As the sun rises over the frigid NH horizon, my thoughts turn to the streets of Port-au-Prince where people already in dire straits are awakening to chaos and unfathomable loss.
It is difficult to wrap one’s head around the scope of a tragedy like this … or any loss – the singular or the multitudinous.
The sun continues its rise, no matter what … life goes on.
Moments pass and the hearts that are left here continue to beat …
The fundamental mysteries continue to confound … just as they always have.
