It’s been a very long week. Two weeks. I tend to become jumbled. My solution? I tend to turn to Emerson. He uses nature as his medium, the following is from his essay “Nature:”
…as objects of science…no man touches these divine natures without becoming, in some degree, himself divine. Like a new soul, they renew the body…life is no longer irksome…for the first time, we exist. We become immortal, for we learn that time and space are reflections of matter…they have no affinity…
And then as we look ahead, we need to remember and personalize:
Fear always springs from ignorance…see it to be a lie andyou have already dealt it its mortal blow.
Go inward, to come out on with the breath of God upon your face. Onward and upward, let us become fellow Americans once more. Helping each other, aiding each other, depending on one another, bearing even weight to make our burden lighter.
