My yesterday and today isn’t just about the sunrise, and I bet it isn’t for those of you who live in New England. You teachers (and by default, kids and parents) had a snow day. Ah, but today is a sun day—“Out, out of the house,” my sister used to tell the kids.
I’ll be heading home where, although my life takes on a less obvious silence, solitude and simplicity, I do my best to keep the spirit. Being at the cottage for five nights has given me a good dose of the 3S’s, but now that fourth S, service, is creeping in. Here’s what I'm thinking about it as I take one last look at the sea in front of me. As a start, service is about being face to face with other human beings in some positive way and about making a difference. At it’s best it’s about giving and receiving.
