Resilience and Renewal on Trial

Yesterday along Hines Drive, a roadway following the Rouge River’s course through suburban Detroit,   the grass was a brilliant green beneath an amiable sun.  Walkers and bikers frequented the paths, though we were  keeping a safe distance, while various harbingers of Spring chirped or trilled or quacked from the nearby wetlands.  Sorely tried at present, the faith of renewal remains alive.

A prayer for our beleaguered health care workers in the Detroit area, as they wage the battle on behalf of us all.  This cup, too, shall pass from you; we can only hope soon.

      We surely are under siege, especially the city of Detroit, but also the surrounding burbs. But, Spring has arrived–a little tentatively-and after the long, gray midwestern winter, that change always lifts people’s spirits.

        Of all the silver linings I scrabble to find in the here and now, nature changing her seasonal clothes is surely the greatest gift. People start to smile again even if it is at a distance from one another. You are under siege and I feel for you all terribly. And helplessly. Which suit is very uncomfortable indeed.
