Happy New Year!

I’ve done a lot of thinking about resolutions and promises to myself, which I know I’ll wrestle with for a few days and then invariably forget about. But today, in a particularly reflective mood I heard a poem by Miller Williams (father of Lucinda Williams) and it struck me as a resolution I could most definitely keep.

Compassion
by Miller Williams

‘Have compassion for everyone you meet,
even if they don’t want it,
what seems conceit, bad manners or cynicism,
Is always a sign of things no ears have heard,
no eyes have seen.
You do not know what wars are going on down where the spirit meets the bone.’

I hope 2016 brings a lot of compassion, love and happiness for you all. x
