Such conflicted thoughts this presidential enthusiasm mixed with sadness over friends' layoffs...ecstatic delight in watching Hope pull herself across the kitchen floor this morning coupled with new reports of the highest unemployment rates since 1982...delicious anticipation of friends from Seattle visiting this weekend paired with our company's acknowledgment that more cuts are still to come... It is a painful time; and at once, a time of celebration. This is the duality we must hold, the Buddhist teaching of both/and. This is today. This moment. Now.
