We come to the Advent season and this year is for me, as for many, a disorienting time: no one coming home for the holidays, so I lose one of my most treasured incarnational symbols of the coming of Love — expressed through all our gatherings.  And we have zoom, where I have been leading some retreats and educational events and that has been a blessing to me. See more on the Retreats and Events page of my website.
It is a time of quiet waiting – I’m ordering a lot of the retreat work around the theme of waiting, waiting for light, while it is still dark.  Will post my poem about that as my Poem of the Season.

Here’s a link to the video I made that helps me settle into the season. The music is the setting of “What is the Crying at Jordan” offered by my friend Ana Hernandez.
