pick just one thing

what do you do when the

world seems to be coming


apart? how do you embody

the bravery that you know you


will need, that you know your

children and your children’s


children will seek for their very

survival? when the system has


turned cold and impervious—

the governing body stripped


of its head and its heart, and in

its place: angry fistfuls of gold—


how do you continue to break

in, break through, without


breaking down? pick just

one thing. pick one thing you


can learn, one thing you can

research, one person you can


help, one word you can say, one

way to hold on to that bravery


and hope; pick just one thing.

no one else can pick it for you:


find the thing that speaks to

you—above the roar of bullshit,


the one thing you can do today,

right now, every day, as small as it


seems. each person doing just one

thing with love and intention will build


back a breathing, beating body:

whole and full, with head and heart


and arms and hands open

and ready to receive again.
