Based on my musings yesterday about Mother's Day and my isolation from the pain of suffereing mothers and children throughout the world, I've decieded, just for today, to try a sunrise to sunset fast in their service. I'm still troubled by the thought that I may be doing this "just to make myself feel better" in a situation in which I'm practically pretty helpless. But my spirituality allows for a possibility that there isn't some deeper connection, some way each action we take, each choice, brings the world as a whole one breath closer or one breath further away from unity and peace for all. I alos intend to use this day off on a practical level to support the mothers locally who have struggles feeding, clothing their families in a time when money is tight for more and more, gas prices high, food pantries emptier. I'm going through my closets and pantry to see if I have anyting useful to contribute - not much but some I think. And I will check the causes for which I write letters and make sure I have not left any possible letters unwritten.

Victoria, I'm going to send you my copy of The Great Silent Grandmother Gathering. I've already memorized it, and have taken part in a physical gathering based on the book, very moving. I am a great believer in the power of thought and intention to change the world.

I like the way you are taking personal action to support what you believe in. Change comes about through many small steps of individuals. Blessings on your efforts.
