When the angels announced the news to the shepherds, they sang it out across the heavens. And when… Read more »

Beauty hiding in plain sight

I was walking in Central Park when I was stopped by this tree. It was only tiny—totally dwarfed by the great elms. But it was caught by the sun—as if in a spotlight—and transformed into a blazing bush. Moses was minding his own business when something caught his eye—a bush was behaving oddly… he came… Read more »

Instantly, all of us—these defended New Yorkers, all avoiding eye contact, all guarding our space—were transformed. We smiled at her. At her… Read more »
