Winter Newsletter 2024

January, 2024

Winter is here and in Chinese Medicine it is the season of the Water Element.

This is a time of rest and contemplation with the arrival of the New Year.  Distressed by climate change, two wars and the upcoming election, it’s a challenge to feel hopeful.

I offer you these words that give me hope.

“To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness.

And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory. What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places—and there are so many—where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.”  -Howard Zinn

Please - keep turning towards the light and shine your radiant self on this winter day.
