I was sweeping through the events of the day, big and small, when I recevied an email message from someone who had recently lost a dear sibling. It felt like the world’s axis had shifted, she said, with everything different yet still just going on.
When I stopped reading for a second and looked up from the computer screen, I knew exactly what she meant. And I knew, too, that this is how things always are. The truth, I might say, or the answer, or the naked nature, what I am always seeking even when I don’t know I’m seeking, is right there in the movement.
