This morning I experienced a small, quiet miracle.
I woke with a song in my heart.I have been deep in depression for so long and music has rarely been able to reach me in the moment, much less stay with me.Thank you, Mavis Staples and Jeff Tweedy for your song “You’re Not Alone.”
Thank you from my heart, dear Ose. As so often, I am truly overwhelmed by the kindness I find here, so that thoughts and words dam up inside and I don’t know how to respond. But I want you to know your beautiful sharing deeply touches me. Wishing you the warmth of music, of friendship this day and always.
Dear Palm, I am here and I keep you in my heart, you and your whole family. Rest, my friend, in the solitude that you so need. I have been thinking of your parents, hoping they are safe amidst the political turmoil of the country where they live. And thinking of you, working through possible job transition. Yes, of course, I will pray for your strength. Thank you for mentioning the summit. It is a good reminder to me, as in the past, I found EFT to be very helpful for releasing trauma. ...

I am wishing you a truly beautiful day with your daughter, dear Diane, and I am happy to remember her in prayer. I do recall those days when I was her age and trying to find my calling.
Thank you, Diane. Hearing her (Mavis Staples) on the radio tell stories about her life felt like I was sitting across the kitchen table from her and she is so full of love and maybe that’s why the song took up habitation in my heart as it did. I am wishing you magical moments of music today.
You are so kind, Anna. Your encouragement goes straight to my heart, I think I will write this out on a slip of paper and tape it above my computer screen, “keep on with the music, dear.”
You understand so well, my friend, and yours is also my most heartfelt wish. The tiny trumpet makes me smile. Just the right size for a mouse. I wonder what he’d play?
No need to reply, my friend — just sending love from grateful sea.
Thank you, Helen. I heard it on the radio yesterday, streaming World Cafe. Hugs back to you.
Dear Michele, this is just to let you know you are in my heart, sending love from grateful sea.
A wonderful way to start the day, dear Ose. Thank you for sharing your joy and gratefulness with us and also your prayer for those who suffer.
Dear Sylvie, my heart feels full reading this news that Gabi is back in her home and in good spirits. Thank you for sharing with us. Of course, I continue to keep her and you in my prayers. Wishing you also a good day.
Dear Ursula, on your recommendation, I will look at this, as self-compassion is still for me something of a ‘wild card’ for which I welcome every reminder to practice. Thank you. Though the words are not flowing for me today, I want you to know how much I appreciate your post below, calling out (as Pilgrim has said) so many names of our friends, cheering the good news, and sharing with us your bright spirit. Sending love from grateful sea.
Dear Ose, thank you so much for visiting even in your weariness. Your warmth radiates. I hope you will never doubt that. Sending love from grateful sea.
Yes, it is beautiful to me that we all see the same moon and sun. I hope the pressure eases for you.
We have snow here too in southern Appalachia. Even so, the Silver Maples are beginning to bloom, yesterday down by the New River I saw one very large tree covered in bright red fuzzy flowers. Spring is on its way.
Thank you, Diane. It means so much to me that we come together in this way. To light a candle is to kindle hope.
Thank you dear Anna. I am here now in this place of love and that is good.
Peace, my friend.
I share your joy in this, dear Ose.
