The audio version of the Nov 7th, 2011 journal entry Can You Hear The Birds Singing?

Can You Hear The Birds Singing? is the audio version of the journal entry from November 7, 2011.

I’d like to share a moving poem with you today that you should print off and post. It is an effective manual for how we should handle this situation as a team. “They say that people in Assisi are singing to each other across the empty squares, keeping their windows open so that those who are alone may hear the sounds of family around them,” struck a chord with me in this line. In his poem Lockdown, Irish Capuchin Franciscan priest-friar Friar Richard Hendrick conveys a number of hopeful messages. Isn’t that the most beautiful thing?

My mind is racing about how my family and I are going to handle this really difficult circumstance. Mothers used to say to us, “Show yourself how to make the most of it.” “How will we look on the other side of all of this?” my wise brother queries. “Wake to the choices you make as to how to live now,” the poet in Lockdown asks us. ”.

If there was any doubt in our minds that this virus would affect everyone, I think the truth has now crept in, and we are aware that our everyday lives have indeed changed. Experiencing empty grocery shelves, closed signs on restaurants, movie theaters, and red X’s on our calendars for upcoming events, meetings, and trips is an unusual feeling.

I am aware that this will put my ability to manage stress to the test. I’ll share my experiences and would love to hear how you’re making the most of it as I consider, plan, and practice my intentions over the next few days. Can I concentrate on what I can control? Can I acknowledge my feelings of anxiety without letting these feelings overwhelm me to the point where I fight, flight, or freeze? Can I do the things I know will make me feel better and not default to worrying in front of the television?
