This holiday season is unique in many ways, but is perhaps most distinguished by physical separation from those we love. “Your body is away from me/but there is a window open/from my heart to yours,” Rumi writes. To love is to share a bond that is felt deeply, and cannot be diminished through physical distance – its energy continues to flow through the windows in our hearts. What news are you sending through your window today? Who are you apart from, and in what ways do you feel close to them despite the distance? How might we keep our windows open to one another in order to give and receive love?
