If life is a journey...then much of 2023 was a bumpy road for my branch of the Whipple family. By November, things smoothed out to bring us together in Japan. We were reminded of what a gift family, health, and concord between people can be.
I've a feeling that 2024 will offer the world its own most moving, incredible journey...Calling us all to stay in wonder, as we wander through all life brings. In the hope that a reflection from Rumi will be a welcome travel companion...
"Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
There is a field. I'll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
The world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase each other
Doesn't make any sense."
May you be well, happy and in peace... throughout the coming years.
