Dear Students, Friends, and Colleagues,
When I wrote a week ago (seems like ages), I posed in passing the question:
HOW LONG . . .?
That is, of course, how long are we all going to be sheltered in place, pinned to our domestic points on the map? Out of work, out of step with the ordinary march of time?
Well, depending who you ask, we’ll either be elbow-to-elbow in church on Easter Sunday or hunkered down with dry goods till Thanksgiving or beyond.
No matter where you are, thinking about the future can make you crazy. Too many what ifs, and what thens . . .
But then, so can taking a deep dive into the present, as many spiritual teachers advise. How’s that gonna work if you’re in the throes of an anxiety attack or dark pit of depression?
