Fragile and quiet and still.  Like crisp morning air.  Like the grass after a frost.  Like a full moon reflecting off the fresh fallen snow.  It could all be perfect.  It could all fall apart.  It is perfect and falling apart and perfectly falling apart again even as we breathe, now.

This is hallowed ground, this space.  This is peace wrought.  This is something other than the chatter and the noise.  It is empty but not hollow.  It is full but it is not filled.

The beat of an angel’s wings stirs the air and and the world has started spinning again.  But I hold you here.


No matter what.

My dear friend Jenni is going into surgery this week.  It is surgery she has dreamed about.  It is surgery that may help her.  It is surgery that may take her.  I do not know how it will turn out but both of us trust that it will happen as it should as it needs to happen.  My heart is so full this week.  It is leaking and dripping and making quite a mess but a lovely mess as I reflect on the love that I learned from Jen.  Send prayers.

    Thank you for this reminder, Meg. I will be thinking of Jenni tonight as Yom Kippur begins, and the book of life is inscribed for a new year.

    With love.

    Hi Meg,
    We have in common the friendship for Jenni and the love and care she has taught us all. I wake in the middle of the night thinking about her and in her surgery wishing the best. I pray and send reiki to. Jennifer entered in our lives and she will be in our hearts forever, i believe!
    Love to you too.

    Oh my darling, I am so ashamed to say that this is the first I have seen of this….beautiful, loving, generous post. I am brought to tears as I read it Meg, thank you so much, what would I have done without you this past twelve months or so? You are a dear, dear friend and I love you so much. I feel so overwhelmed and undeserving of such a beautiful gift of love. Thank you too to the darling friends that wrote in and kept me in their prayers, we do not know where I would be now without them. I was indeed being held by arms all around the world, I am so fortunate. xxxxxxxxxxx
