“Smooth Path Through Tangled Terrain” © by Carolyn Treadway

Recorded by Carmen Rumbaut

The past year has been a time of extraordinary “tangles” surrounding us in every direction, often traumatic, frequently blocking our way forward no matter what we tried. For much of 2020, Mother Nature sent us to our rooms to ponder our misdeeds.  She gave us a rare opportunity to comprehend many crucial things, such as how connected and interdependent we truly are.  At times our cooperation and care for each other profoundly demonstrated and illuminated our “path” toward the Great Turning. In the coming months and years, may more and more of us find our path through the tangles and follow it resiliently, making it larger, smoother, and sweeter as we co-create the life sustaining, life enhancing world we long for today.
