a big moon rise on a warm spring night when I'm not dreading the next day is a blessing and joy that words cannot contain.

Context / Forgiveness

With everything going on, of course this pops up in a random feed.  I've been pretty focused on the joint relationship of forgiveness even if the other party is not a part of the process.  It works.

Well timed, universe, well timed.

"Under Better Circumstances..."

More times than I can count, I've said "Under better circumstances...." this weekend, but the reality of life and living is that these *are* the circumstances. We live, love, and suffer loss. Sometimes a great deal of it in rapid succession. And sometimes in the middle of these crazy storms, you look around and realize the sheer incredibleness of being in the unfailing embrace of a tribe that embodies the Marley motto of loving hard when there's love to be had. So, then, a fitting occasion to come home and swing through waves of grief and laughter and loss and celebration filled with the "yeah, that!" moments that, for some of us, can only happen in the fold of a trusted circle.

Dear 2:46 AM

Thank you for your beautiful solitude. Your blessed quiet that even the birds do not interrupt. Your velvety, peaceful darkness. Most of all, thank you for your protective promise of a distant tomorrow in the midst of your beautiful slipstream of no to do lists and no deadlines.

Nothing but a lazy free fall.  A wonderful waking dream.
