Shelter In Place Day 32: Ann Strack

Shelter-in-Place: Day 32

I love this slowed down version of myself.
She is 5 years old.

At 6, it all changed.
School. Teachers.
The world pushing in.
“I can be what the world WANTS me to be… Smart”.
I can answer questions.

I can add 2 plus 7 and know
the answer is 9.
But what IS 9?
And who is 2 and have I ever met 7?
What if 2 is a who and 7 is a what, do they still
come together as 9?

It doesn’t seem to matter.
The answer is 9.
And I get accolades.
A well-mannered, able bodied,
pretty little white girl.
And now, it is revealed, I am also smart.
Set for life.

Until now.
Now, I have no answers.

I do know who and what I love.
More than ever,
I know,
this is all that matters.

Ann Strack

A Song For The Soul: Tina Stromsted

From Tina Stromsted: A song for the soul in challenging times from a local poet ????


What if you thought of it
as the Jews consider the Sabbath—
the most sacred of times?
Cease from travel.
Cease from buying and selling.
Give up, just for now, on trying
to make the world different
than it is. Sing. Pray.
Touch only those to whom
you commit your life.
Center down.

And when your body
has become still,
reach out with your heart.
Know that we are connected
in ways that are terrifying
and beautiful.
(You could hardly deny it now.)
Know that our lives are
in one another’s hands.
(Surely, that has come clear.)
Do not reach out your hands.
Reach out your heart.
Reach out your words.
Reach out all the tendrils
of compassion that move,
invisibly, where we cannot

Promise this world your love–
for better or for worse,
in sickness and in health,
so long as we all shall live.

– Lynn Ungar 3/11/20
