When we are mindful, touching deeply the present moment, we can see and listen deeply, and the fruits are always understanding, acceptance, love and the desire to relieve suffering and bring joy.
Thich Nhat Hanh
We are trying to commit to live mindfully. When we do, we realize there is so much Transcendence everywhere we look. It has been a week of solidarity with our brothers and sisters murdered by hate during a mid-week Bible study last week at an African Methodist Episcopal church in Charleston, SC. On the way to a water delivery on Saturday, we passed one of the AME churches in Detroit. They were celebrating Life and Love in the midst of pain and mourning.
Back at St. Peter's, Tina was posting up at home base having a Bible study with the birds (while enjoying a cigar).
On Sunday, we crossed the border again to pick up Tom's parents at the train station and had a Father's Day dinner before they flew back to SoCal. Tom went for a run on the river walk…
…and Lindsay spent time journaling on the patio of a little cafe.
Meanwhile, back in our neighborhood, this car apparently burned up and sat lonely for 72 hours before she was towed away.
The little boy next door was trying to score on his mama.
And on Monday, the biggest storm of the year started rolling in: hot, humid, thunder & lightening...
…thank God for the AC unit we invested in.
