Wishing you all a peaceful and healthy Christmas. May we all be patient and present, grateful for what we have and what we are. A shadow or a light, you get to decide.

Lots of love to you
Sharing a beautiful poem by Corinna Luyken

My heart is a window,
My heart is a slide.
My heart can be closed
or opened up wide.
Some days it’s a puddle.
Some days it’s a stain.
Some days it is cloudy
and heavy with rain.
Some days it is tiny,
but tiny can grow…
and grow…
and grow.
There are days it’s a fence
between me and the world,
days it’s a whisper
that can barely be heard.
There are days it is broken,
but broken can mend,
and a heart that is closed
can still open again.
My heart is a shadow,
a light and a guide.
Closed or open…
I get to decide.

Así, Cufré nos abre el camino de lo que su investigación nos irá mostrando lentamente al asegurar en la primera línea de su trabajo que “la esclavitud es tan antigua como el hombre”.
