We love imagining reindeer on rooftops & wise people following stars.
We love imagining lights in temples that just keep burning.
We love imagining unity, self-determination and collective responsibility, the gifts of diaspora remembered.
And always we love imagining the return of lengthening days as we sit with, as Joan Halifax says, the fruitful darkness.
As we snuggle with dogs now sleeping after a long, quiet walk in the forest, here are a few more things we’re imagining:.
A world where there is more singing.
A world where everyone laughs more.
A world where every child is read to.
A world that celebrates with service as well as champagne.
A world where we all make time for more sunshine.
A world courageous enough to admit when we’re wrong.
A world brave enough to lead with love.
A world where we all sleep enough.
A world where we all eat enough.
A world ready to sow seeds, to grow seeds, to breed new seeds, knowing our gardens grow us more than we’ll ever grow them.
A world where even if we never sow a seed in our lives, we know we’re a part of a food system, a social system, an ecosystem, a living, breathing thing larger than ourselves that we might care for, as we’re cared for.
We’d love to imagine a world where Martin Luther King can have a dream and not be shot for it.
We’d love to imagine a world where we can meet discomfort with curiosity.
We’d love each child to have a tree to climb.
Thanks for imagining these things with us.
Together, we can believe a lot of things into being.
What is your one wild wish for this season of miracles?
