The master makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him, he is always doing both.

…there is also the idea of progressive improvement in which work and the spiritual world are inseparable. For a craftsman/artist, the more you make beauty, the more your soul is beautiful! (The beauty is operative, direct like a punch, it creates an astonished destabilization and opens the doors to paradise.)

- Jean-Claude Flornoy, historian, artist and restorer of the Marseilles tarot. From an interview with Enrique Enriquez.

DEAR AMERICA:

TODAY WE GRIEVE. 

BUT NOW IS A TIME FOR ACTION, NOT TEARS,

IF WE MEAN TO GRIEVE ALL THESE DEATHS WITH RESPECT

AND ENDOW THEM WITH PURPOSE.

88 PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SLAUGHTERED 

IN MASS MASSACRES WITH ASSAULT WEAPONS

THIS YEAR ALONE.

OH AMERICA, WHEN WILL WE WAKE UP? 

OUR CONSTITUTION GIVES YOU THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS,

TO POSSESS A FIREARM AND TO USE SUCH ARM

FOR TRADITIONALLY LAWFUL PURPOSES 

SUCH AS SELF-DEFENSE WITHIN THE HOME.

IT DOES NOT GIVE US THE RIGHT TO WALK AROUND

WITH HANDGUNS THAT HAVE THE CAPACITY TO KILL

A DOZEN PEOPLE IN A FEW SECONDS.

IT DOES NOT GIVE US THE RIGHT

TO FIRE WEAPONS OF WAR AS A HOBBY.

IT DOES NOT GIVE US THE RIGHT

TO PUT WEAPONS OF WAR INTO THE HANDS OF FOOLS AND MADMEN.

A CANCER GROWS IN OUR SOUL AMERICA, 

IN WHICH THE WEAK EQUATE GUNS WITH PERSONAL POWER, 

AND THE RIGHT TO OWN A GUN IS OF MORE VALUE THAN THE RIGHT OF A CHILD TO LIVE.

YOU DO NOT NEED AN ASSAULT RIFLE TO DEFEND YOURSELF.

IF YOU GIVE YOURSELF THE RIGHT TO PLAY

AT SHOOTING WEAPONS OF WAR, ENJOYING

THE POWER IN YOUR HANDS, BE ASSURED

THAT EVENTUALLY,

THE WEAK AND THE MAD WILL INDULGE THEMSELVES AS WELL.

WHY DO WE TRUST THEM TO REIN IN THEIR TEMPERS 

IN THE FACE OF UNKINDNESS OR OTHER STRESSORS?

IS YOUR ENJOYMENT OF YOUR BUSHMASTER .223 ASSAULT RIFLE

WORTH THE LIVES OF THE 26 HUMAN BEINGS

WHO WERE RIPPED APART LAST FRIDAY?

BECAUSE THAT IS THE PRICE YOU HAVE PAID.

LITTLE CHILDREN, MY GOD… LITTLE CHILDREN

AND TEACHERS USING THEIR BODIES AS SHIELDS! 

EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US MUST LOOK DEEP

TO FIND OUR FRACTION OF RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIS HORROR,

NO MATTER HOW TINY.

MY HEART IS BROKEN FOR THEM, AND FOR ALL OF US,

AS THIS IS THE WORLD WE HAVE MADE FOR OUR CHILDREN.

WAKE UP AMERICA, PLEASE, WAKE UP!

STOP GLORIFYING THE VIOLENCE, STOP EXPOSING YOUNG CHILDREN TO IT 

THROUGH VIDEO GAMES AND CINEMA AND TV. 

YOU’RE AS MUCH FOOLS AND MADMEN AS LAST FRIDAY’S GUNMAN

IF YOU THINK DESENSITIZING YOUR YOUNG TO MURDER

DOESN’T LEAD DIRECTLY TO THESE MASSACRES.

WAKE UP AMERICA, PLEASE, WAKE UP!

YOUR NEARSIGHTED DEFENSE OF YOUR UNLIMITED RIGHT

TO BEAR ARMS MAKES YOU AS WRONG-HEARTED AS THE TALIBAN

WHO MURDER WOMEN FOR WANTING TO LEARN TO READ,

AS SICK AND DELUDED AS THE NAZIS WHO MURDERED MILLIONS OF JEWS, 

OR ANY OF THE OTHER OPPRESSORS AGAINST WHOM

WE’VE RIGHTEOUSLY RAISED OUR ARMS AGAINST IN WAR.

WAKE UP AMERICA, PLEASE, WAKE UP!

PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE… WITH GUNS.

STOP PUTTING GUNS INTO PEOPLE’S HANDS. 

THESE MASSACRES PROVE THAT OUR SOCIETY

LACKS THE MATURITY AND WISDOM TO BE GRANTED THE RIGHT

TO BEAR ARMS WITHOUT LIMITATIONS.

WAKE UP AMERICA, PLEASE, WAKE UP!

AND SET THE EXAMPLE IN THE WORLD AS YOU SO OFTEN HAVE.

The mystery is before me. Silence – I must enter the realm of silence. Listen: not to pre-conceived notions, not to voices of the to-do list, but to the sounds of the reeds swishing together in the breeze. Smell the earth, notice the movement, like brush strokes zigzagging across the page of sky and earth in a calligraphy that shows the way to my soul.

That decision to move forward in the direction of my intentions is one I make every day in everything I am—writer, mother, human. Or at least I do when I’m doing my best. We all get stuck in place on occasion. We all move backwards sometimes. But moving forward is what we’re here for so I try to do it even when I’m afraid there might be a marauding bull waiting for me down the trail. Forward is the direction of real life.
