Hi Everyone, I'm sure that many of you have already read this poem. Kitty O'Meara is an American who wrote this poem and it has gone viral. I found it on the website of our wonderful Russell Books. It makes me smile and right now I like things that make me smile.

And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently.

And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.

And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed.

Thank you, sharing reflections such as this, helps with the healing, and brings a closeness with other souls, in other places........
Am copying this for a collection of inspirations to read during the quiet times of our lives at presents.
