Mindful Monday

"When someone with the authority of a teacher, say, describes the world, and you are not in it, there is a moment of psychic disequilibrium, as if you looked into a mirror and saw nothing. Yet you know you exist and others like you, that this is a game with mirrors. It takes some strength of soul - and not just individual strength, but collective understanding - to resist this void, this nonbeing, into which are thrust, and to stand up, demanding to be seen and heard."
-Adrienne Rich
