Looking at these hands:
– the years of wiping tears as they fall
– the years of holding, soothing the child to sleep
– the years of caressing with deep pain within
– the years of toiling with illusions of happiness
You are good enough, more than this.

A windy day, cloudy and cold. A busy day for me yet something calls to me…something beautiful in essence. The words in my mind long to be expressed… so I take time. To be honest, I am stealing time but then again, I can’t steal what is mine. Ah, this wandering mind… 🙂
Sitting here in the café, watching dappled sunlight filtering through the canopy of trees, listening to the sound of cars passing by, I can finally take a deep breath and write… the words of appreciation, the words of gratitude… for this world of mine. Despite the ugliness which I am certain exists if I turn my attention to it, but not today. My spirit, my soul need respite.
And this song speaks to me in this moment, a song by a soulful musician no longer with us but his unique sound will.
Sit back, close your eyes, and enjoy!
With much appreciation and gratitude,
