“Nada vale tanto como la paz.”
(Nothing is worth as much as peace.)
– José Mujica
The former president of Uruguay (fascinating man — please Google) spoke these words, and they touched a street artist in Colombia who painted them on this wall in Medellín.
In times of turbulence, we recognize the value of tranquility. Which leads me to wonder how much we long for something to happen when we are in the midst of calm times. Is the pendulum always set to swing away from where we are?
I certainly don’t have answers to these questions. In the present day, I can only agree with Mujica & the artist.
What do you long for in this moment?
