2017, how swiftly you appeared.
Out of nowhere it seems.
You were here.
And you brought a gift, a word, “curare.”
The root word for curator, Latin, meaning “to take care.”
Life begs for care.
Long overdue care.
Taking care of thoughts, words, ideas,
health, heart, home, resources, and souls — mine and those around me.
So I accept the gift of the word, “curare.”
I am slowing down, pausing, and practicing taking care.
