After staying up last night watching the election returns and sharing posts on the Friends of Hillary Election Night Party on Facebook, and going through the surprise, disbelief, and anguish of witnessing a Donald Trump victory, I finally got to bed around 3 AM. Then I started feeling chest pains. I wondered: am I having a heart attack? Is this how my body is responding to the election?
Fortunately Wendy was nearby to help me, and a visit to the doctor today confirmed that I’m okay. I’m feeling very healthy and cheerful, like I have a new lease on life. 🙂
Many of us are feeling stricken — though maybe not quite this dramatically — with the sense that we’ve lost our America, with our hopes for her future, that we thought we knew. And we’re wondering: what comes next, for our country, the world, and each of us?
I want to be with friends to share feelings and reflections about mourning and acting, around the theme: BEING AMERICAN NOW. So I’m drawn to convene a wisdom circle, similar to our current OWL Wisdom Circles, for friends to reflect on the question: what does it mean to be American now?
The circle will be open to anyone, inside or outside the U.S., who shares our OWL values. I’m looking at potential meeting times of around 9 AM or 5 PM Pacific time, on a Sun., Mon., or Tue. If enough people are interested, we’ll do it.
Are you interested? Let me know!
