What risk? The risk of letting your vision go to waste and not be communicated. The risk of not moving us toward beloved community For the Grandchildren. The risk of wasting our lives. The risk of wasting grandchildren’s lives.

Footprints in the Windsm # 1860–I walk in a winter storm

Footprints in the Windsm # 1860

I walk in a winter storm
The snow, the rain, the ice
Pelt me
My footing unsure
Winds buffet me,
Hold me back, propel me,
Push me off course
I step into this place out of the storm
Meeting warmth and good people
Maybe at an unanticipated destination
Nonetheless, destination
