I’ve been on this “world tour” almost a year. This journey has taken me from New Jersey to Tampa to Jacksonville Beach, and now to North Carolina. I have been sharing the power of the Mindful Mandala cards with people I meet along the way. Now, I find myself living in a small town in North Carolina. I am once again a stranger to the community and wonder what propelled me to leave home to follow this path.
I am being stripped of all the labels I used to identify what I do, who I am, how I appear to others. And that, it appears, is exactly the reason for this journey. Yesterday I came upon this phrase from a Wendell Berry poem. It felt as if he wrote it with me in mind. Sharing our stories with others is the tie that binds us all together, and just may save our species.
