May my mind come alive today
To the invisible geography

What draws your eye as you enter the day?

Don’t know

“The difference between confusion and ‘don’t know’ is that confusion can only see one way out and that way is blocked, while ‘don’t know’ is open to miracles and insights.” ~ Joyce Rupp

What peace to you work toward?
