Reparations

1. A specific compassionate loving thing I birthed into the world today: I went to an Ohlone village site and learned about the people whose land I’m living on.

2. A specific loving thing someone gave to me today: The people at the site graciously shared their traditions with me.

3. A not-so-loving thing someone gave to me today: A co-worker I respect and I have conversations where neither of us reflects active listening – we talk to each other on the fly, and are just trying to get our ideas out there.

4. A compassionately loving thing I did in response to the not-so-loving thing today: I’ll be mindful to relate what I’m saying more to what she’s saying – we both have the same goal.
