The Daily Examen - June 1, 2017

There is nothing better
than walking out of church
on a warm summer evening
one of the altos said
after the last rehearsal
before Pentecost
and no one disagreed.

Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit: Moons and Junes

Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit. It has been a few months since I’ve written my first of the month reflections. It has been a busy time with a lot of thinking and writing, although much of my personal writing has been too private journal entries instead of more public writing.

I have recently taken to writing a Daily Examen in free verse, which I hope to write more about the underlying ideas soon. This month sees Pentecost and ember days, and I am thinking about writing about some of this as well. We are seeing the start of the 2018 state races in Connecticut. Several of my friends are running, so I’m hesitating to write about that.

The summer solstice is almost upon us and before we know it, the list of emerging artists for this year’s Falcon Ridge Folk Festival will be announced. Then there will be the plays at the New York Fringe Festival, and there will be the eclipse. There will be “moons and Junes and ferris wheels”.

So, invoking the old childhood chant, Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit, let’s hope for a great June and a great summer.
