Omer Day 27: Foundation of Endurance

Yesod sh'b'Netzach – Foundation of Endurance

Here in the joining of strong right thigh to centering pubic bone, 

here in the weaving of my life and yours, the melding of my purpose and The Purpose, here you are staying still, staying present for as long as you need, for all time like the ocean promises the sand, like the stars promise the black expanse of night, here you are the lone tree not fallen despite wind, despite rain, if nothing could shake your roots, here is where you would find yourself and what would you do with this enduring foundation holding you firm, what would you dare?
