Welcome to a New Year! It feels like we have already lived three months of it with all the events that unfolded in the past few weeks.
I certainly have been moved by many of them, but none more that the beautiful presence of the first National Youth Poet Laureate, Amanda Gorman’s recitation of her work, “The Hill We Climb” at the inauguration.
If you missed it, I encourage you to find a recording of it, to experience it as Amanda would want it to be heard. Words from a 23-year old sage, who overcame a childhood speech impediment and an auditory processing disorder. Perhaps one word for 2021 is INSPIRING?
Louisa has always enjoyed writing and is thrilled that she now has a way to share her musings with a larger community of like-minded seekers. Her writing is often an extension and exploration of the struggles she faces in integrating her own spirituality, scholarly study, life experience, and nuggets of brilliance from her teachers in the hopes that it might alchemically transform itself into something approximating wisdom.
