More wise thoughts from Parker Palmer this week on "sharing our loves and doubts" and this powerful poem by Yehuda Amichai.

After reading about my faux pas last week, he graciously offered me a bit of humorous counsel (on Facebook, no less):

"We're drying them out. But I'm looking closely — a lot of these pages, it's not reparable. This is just heartbreaking to look at."

Joanna Macy is a philosopher of ecology, a Buddhist scholar, and an exquisite translator of the poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke. We take that poetry as a lens on her wisdom on spiritual life and its relevance for the political and ecological dramas of our time.
