Compassion and Pausing

This first week of the Trump presidency has been exciting to say the least. How can I take it in and be useful to myself and the country.

As I noted at the end of my previous blog: pause and read widely.


  1. For me, pausing, is more than just taking a breath. I need to ponder over time: minutes or hours. I use my exercise of riding my bike as a good time to get out of the humdrum of input from others and reflect.
  2. For reading widely a cup of coffee at my favorite shop does the trick. Read and Orange Man Detective with Magnifying Glassreflect. The only outside in put in the shop I go to is the biking sports station which just shows race after race. No commercials.
