Dear *|FIRSTNAME|*,

Many of the people I have spoken with this week have mentioned feeling very weary of the pandemic. If you also fall into that category, you might appreciate a beautiful poem by John O'Donohue entitled 'For one who is exhausted, a blessing'. Here are a few lines from it:

You have traveled too fast over false ground;
Now your soul has come to take you back.

Take refuge in your senses, open up
To all the small miracles you rushed through.

Become inclined to watch the way of rain
When it falls slow and free.
