Ten years ago Today

September 11th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Ten years ago today I awoke from a restful siesta in a small village along the Camino de Santiago in Spain.  An urgent plea to communicate came from the owner of the refugio, which after several failed attempts using translation, I was led to his living room where I watched in shock, the World Trade Centre, the city of New York and the whole world, absorb terror.

Today, I wake with gratitude for the light and joy in life that miraculously continues, despite its option not to.  May we persevere in our efforts to cultivate compassion and harmony; first within ourselves and then, with all others.

Today, my life is so different from ten years ago when I was in the midst of writing a thesis and beginning an uncertain career.  And for my journey to what I call home today, I am grateful.

Grateful that I get to play and rehearse with extraordinary people for Siddhartha: The Journey Home.

Following that, I will have the privilege of meeting with two fine actors in preparation to work with pharmacists from around the lower mainland to deepen their understanding of what it means to develop therapeutic relationships with patients.

Life is so full of richness and mystery, I can understand why so many people experience insomnia.  OM.
