Keep some room in your heart
for the unimaginable.
As we began putting together this issue the unimaginable
happened – a global pandemic bloomed across the globe,
separating us from the comforts of community.
Yet compassion blossomed all around in small, profound
kindnesses: volunteers brought groceries, meals or books and
music to the homebound, companies provided meals to first
responders, love and celebration were expressed in parades
past nursing homes, and to celebrate graduating seniors
who could not congregate for commencement.
“Evidence”, the poem by Mary Oliver, from which the title of
this letter is taken, gives me an appreciation of life as it is.
May some of her words hearten you.
“I believe in kindness. Also in mischief. Also in singing,
especially when singing is not necessarily prescribed.
There are many ways to perish, or to flourish.”
The caregivers and providers who stepped up to meet
others’ needs in our shared crisis are the same ones listed in
these pages who offer support every day in every way. They
are here to guide, assist, inform and support you.
