What might we discover if we were to do so?

 
A Fierce Practice 3 1 17
 

From the opening of the recent On Being interview with the poet Marilyn Nelson, Communal Pondering in a Noisy World. (Always listen to the unedited versions. Always.)

"It just so happens that we are present here at the very moment spoken of in Genesis. The moment of transition from day to night. On the Jewish calendar, this evening in particular marks the moment of leaving behind the six days of the week, and of entering the Sabbath. It doesn’t matter what your religious tradition is. Nor does it matter if you have a religious tradition. Time passes. We can ignore its passage. Or we can stop and pay attention to it. Stop and pay attention. What a novel idea. What might we discover if we were to do so?" 

Some very good questions today. Read the full note HERE.
