Here I am again. Catching up – but not entirely. 

Today’s news out of Boston is overwhelming and terrible. My heart is aching. After a wonderfully centering class at the karate school tonight, I came home and started listening to music, reading poems and writing a little. At times like this, watching my nation suffer, art seems an incredible privilege and an incredible balm. I am grateful for it.
