Half of 2020 is behind us and the second half waiting to be lived. COVID-19 has turned the world including South Africa upside down. The virus brings with it`s huge impact without reserve, an intense light illuminating what is not sustainable in the way we live, consume, survive…so much inequalities in class, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, opportunities, education…. and the list goes on and on and on… And I am confronted with the realities of loss, grief, joy, hope, despair, numbness, overwhelm, presence, gratitude, breathing, stillness, rage, blame, shame, forgiveness, lightness, space, warmth…. and the list goes on and on and on….Today I am taking a stand in between the first 6 months and the next 6 months of 2020…feeling my backbone straight, my feet shoulder width apart, balanced and firmly planted, my shoulders relaxed and my chest open with healthy heartbeat and lungs inhaling and exhaling in a steady rhythm…I am fully human and aware of my presence, my connections with others and nature….I embrace my vulnerability and it is solid ground for me to grow, face what is coming and making choices to be more sustainable in meeting what is coming my way. And in all of this, I enter the eye of the storm through faith….Thank GOD….
