Yesterday, when I was walking around in the heat of the day, I heard “The Heat of the Day” by the Pat Metheny Group.
The music of the Pat Metheny Group has helped me get through a lot of heat of many days, but I can never remember there being so much heat to get through before. Here and now, there’s the heat of
- uncontrolled wild fires,
- climate change,
- the pandemic,
- personal attacks, and
- panic about the future.
In all that heat of many days, it feels like we’re heading to the end of the world.
In the heat of my writing this post, the ironically soothing “To the End of the World” is playing, which is helping me deal with the heat of a new day.
Can you see the heat of the day in these images?
I do believe we’re stronger together, but the heat of these days seems to be driving us apart.
In the heat of this day, I will be providing crisis services remotely and training a new social work intern to withstand the heat of the day at the hospital.
In the heat of the moment, I shall chill by looking for your comments on this “Heat of the Day” post.
In the heat of your day, please remember my gratitude for all, including YOU.
