Simply soaking……


In all of your tired places,

your wilted spaces,

feeling weary and parched and needing fresh graces…..

I sing your heart the sort of rest that feels like this:)

A good long healing soak.

from a spring in the woods.”

(It gives me joy,  just so much joy,  to send a copy of my July Ripplesongs
to the beautiful Gwen Lily)

      Cool clear water. I remember my parent’s playing a song
      from an old album that had that line:) Makes me smile:)
      thanks for dropping by to visit,

  4. I ALWAYS feel better when I come here. I can just feel that soothing creek/river…thank you so much.

  5. I wanted you to know that after I absorbed all of your newsletter ’till I was full up, (and made notes all over my computer-:)…I sent it off to my Aunt who has—in the past two years—lost her husband (bone cancer), daughter (ovarian cancer), job and livelihood (due to retirement–she has loss of vision and couldn’t do her work anymore.) For every loss, there is someone who has a greater loss. You offer a place of peace and a cool drink of friendship and love. This is a sacred place.

      I’m so to hear it, Susan; my heart is soaking that in:)
      Your words are sizzle and balm, friend….thank you:)

  6. A soft, ever so gentle trickle flows the weariness away and soothes one’s soul with fresh graces… allowing ourselves to be lifted and transported by that gentle flow. <3
