Healing the Soil of our Democracy


It’s becoming more and more clear to me that we all have a lot of work to do.

In the midst of what sure seems like chaos, how can we possibly begin to heal? How can we build community?

RECOMS reflections, holiday edition

This year has been a feast of the bizarre. It turned out, there’s little control one has over their life and, regardless of how rich one’s imagination is, life always has something up her sleeve. Things that were supposed to happen never did, and the ones that no one had even imagined in their wildest dreams became a part of everyday life. In Russian we say: “Human plans but god decides.” And “god” here is simply a placeholder for anything bigger and greater than a human. Which is plenty.
