What we choose...

During the last two weeks of July I was present at the Chapter (decisionmaking meeting for those unfamiliar with this term) of my own community, the Sisters of Mercy of NL and Labrador. Our facilitator was Judith King, a young Irish woman with sharp and helpful skills. Here is the verse she kept bringing us back to:

What we choose changes us

Who we love transforms us

How we create remakes us

Where we live reshapes us.

I have made this a mantra in my own life since then and it has already affected many of my days. I have it written where I won't miss it and I connect with its words as often as I can, because it reminds me - now, after 70 - that neither choice, nor love, nor creating nor reshaping has unlimited time for unfolding.

Thanks, Mike...so glad you found it here. I think it's remarkable. Holly's grandmother is one of my long and close friends; it was she who sent it.

Thanks for posting this. I heard it read from Abbey Theatre in their "Dear Ireland" and was hoping that I would find it on the web. I thought it stole the show.
