A Blessing and the Joy of Belonging
Every August at this time of year, we close down our studios on Loring Park for two weeks and let everyone on staff take a joint holiday. It’s an utterly freeing experience to know that each one of our team members can fully unplug and not feel guilty about leaving their tasks to someone else. So, after our first few days away, I leave you with a brief letter and excerpts from three selected poems to see you through the week…
On the day when
The weight deadens
On your shoulders
And you stumble,
May the clay dance
To balance you.
Dear Dog Behind the Fence, you
to calm down now. You have been
barking every time
I walk to the compost for two years
and I have not robbed your house.
in the gold light
turning this way
it was one
like any other.
As always, thank you for the kind and generous feedback. Please feel free to contact me or anyone on our team.
May the wind always be at your back.
