First Day of the Rest of Our Lives

Today at 11:49 am Eastern Standard Time, I sang the Doxology to myself. Then I sang Amazing Grace along with everyone else as I watched the last part of the Biden/Harris Inauguration on my tablet and delighted in Ms. Gorman’s poem.

The two hours since then? I have sat in peaceful silence with no urge to doomscroll.

Peace. Quiet Joy. Complete Relief.
