And so

the tide goes in…

the tide goes out…

friendships, relationships, loved ones 

their traces…their embrace…

the look in their eyes as I am reflected 

a mirror…

a divine connection…

their delicate finger wiping the tears, pulling back the strands of knotted wet hair

and saying, “keep on going

it will be okay”

maybe my eyes no longer see them in the physical


their touch, their words, their energy

infused into every cell of my being

Leaving me utterly, wonderfully rewired.

Their indelible fingerprint of love traced my heart

Rendering me grateful.

On this Thanksgiving Day, I would like to thank you. I am grateful for you.

Some of you I know…some of you I have never met…

But you all have touched my soul and given me wings to fly.

I’d like to share this message called “A Silent Minute” with you.

It is written by Mr. Rogers.

Thank you for being on this journey with me…

In sympathetic resonance we shimmer for we are all connected in this magnificent fabric of light we call LIFE.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Here are the words of Mr. Rogers:

I’d like to give you all an invisible gift. A gift of a silent minute to think about those who have helped you become who you are today.  Some of them may be here right now.  Some may be far away.  Some, like my astronomy professor, may even be in heaven.  But wherever they are, if they’ve loved you, and encouraged you, and wanted what was best in life for you, they’re right inside your self.  And I feel that you deserve quiet time, on this special occasion, to devote some thought to them.  So, let’s just take a minute, in honor of those that have cared about us all along the way.  One silent minute…

Whomever you’ve been thinking about, imagine how grateful they must be, that during your silent times, you remember how important they are to you.  It’s not the honors and the prizes, and the fancy outsides of life which ultimately nourish our souls.  It’s the knowing that we can be trusted.  That we never have to fear the truth.  That the bedrock of our lives, from which we make our choices, is very good stuff.
