We are going through a rough time. Take a deep breath…
The people of Northern Ireland have a phrase for this kind of challenging passage. They might refer to it as a Correymeela which means, The Lumpy Crossing Place. The landscape is shifting, the map is changing, the weather is mixed with an 80% chance of chaos. It is lumpy, but it is manageable and important that we keep moving with eyes and hearts wide open and our vision set on the horizon.

Be well, Everyone.
