Where do you turn when you get lost in life?
My kids might not ever know what it means to be lost, and I think that’s a bad thing. They’re growing up with ever present GPS in their pockets and people guiding them at each step. I’m worried they might not be cultivating the skills to find their own way. Getting lost, literally and figuratively, teaches us who we are.
This week on my blog, I wrote about what it means to feel lost and find meaning in the wilderness moments of our lives.

What I’m thinking about this week
Viral video shows how the beauty we practice remains with us for life
Marta C. Gonzalez was a talented ballerina. After years of living with dementia, a project in Spain played Tchaikovsky for her, awakening memories of her own dancing. You can see that beauty come alive in her body. Take a look!
Ancient ginkgo tree keeps shining for us
A ginkgo tree in Xian, China has become a hot spot for travelers. It is said that the tree was planted during the early Tang Dynasty (618-907) by emperor Li Shimin. Over a thousand years later, this tree shines as an example that our actions and legacy live on long after we leave the world.
There’s magic and meaning all around us. Keep your eyes open for it.
