And all the beautiful things that make you weep


my talented friend's voice rolls over me like the ocean of peace. with each tone and echo of his song my heart is melted into it's self. i am struck with the beauty of the people i love and their gifts of little graces to me.

last night i was so blessed by so many of those wonderful people coming over and celebrating my birthday. this is the first year that i can remember feeling at peace and delighted on my birthday. no anger, no sorrow, no regret, just at peace and happy. this is what i hope to cultivate this year a steadiness of faith. it feels like the end of a old country song where you have traveled through shit and finally get to the hopeful plunky strums of an acoustic guitar that spells out hope.

i think 28 is going to be a good year.
