It’s the little things. It’s the places you go and the people smiling across the table at you. At Taco Friday, it certainly isn’t the food, although that was fine. But it was sitting in the sun — at six-thirtyish at this point in August, it’s really still pretty high in the sky.
It’s the friends. And the fact that we’re doing it again. Just like we did four years ago… or six years ago or…
This is what makes the oh-so-mundane sacred. If you’re going to have traditions, you have to step up, show up, something up… and care for them and for the connections that make them sweet.
Peace takes tender overtures, but it also requires continuing to show up… and sometimes it’s right in front of your face!
