NEW YORK
Kings Park
Glens falls
The Adirondack Friends Meeting will meet after worship to stand in silence and reflect on the ways we can deepen our quest for peace in these challenging times.
So so beautiful... thank you... Standing with you all. This came through this morning: I forget to breath. I give myself away. Because I love, sometimes too much, I neglect my sacred clay. And for some moments, I forget that God flows in each little bit of who I am and who you are and in every breath, in every Star. So holding again to the source I am, I reconnect with the force I am. I find my way into this vessel's Ray. I shine in and all around. I shine above and I shine down. I shine because I simply am. I shine because I simply can. When I shine into me, this clay, I remind others to be free today. And to walk in Oneness along their way. And to be known, to be Home and to forever pray...

We traditionally stand on the Saturday of Mother's Day weekend and will be doing that again this year on Saturday, May 7th with signs and banners in a silent vigil for one hour from 1 PM to 2 PM

UTAH
Midway
Several venues will figure into this Mother's Day posting for me. I will be on a Zoom call early Mother's Day morning with people living in several international countries - beautiful information about the event will be read out loud on this call. Afterwards, I'll be attending a Mother's Day gathering including a few women who live in Park City, Utah, plus their assorted children. At this event I will be very present myself and probably quiet about Standing Women -- However, I will be emanating our poignant message the entire time I am there. I love the idea of women taking a stand for better lives for All children wherever they are. And at all times! Here is a Yoko Ono quote I found recently: A dream you dream alone is only a dream... a dream you dream together is a reality! What I see i the future is... More Love...
