This has been one of the most challenging weeks in my 15 years of professional life. It's been filled with deep sadness, rays of hope and growing community. Crisis usually brings forth all of these things, I guess.
But, as the God Googler reminded us yesterday (quoting the Franciscan friar Richard Rohr):
"Life is hard. Get over it."
This has been my first instance of great professional difficulty since the steady and I got married in June. It's been such a help. Whatever happens, I know someone else is sharing my life and we will get through any challenge together. That knowledge brings great comfort.
Which brings me to the clip below.
For a "YouTube clip for a peaceful weekend," here are Glenn Murphy, Oisin O'Callaghan and Ronan Scolard with a beautifully slow take on The Rembrandt's "I'll Be There For You" (best known as the theme song of "Friends," of course).
