        Love the blog. Really love the balls. I gotta tell ya C… what you write always touches me ,and stirs my inner stew around in ways that make me feel more connected,  and hopeful for humanity.  In a year that just piled it up on everyone, day after frickin day, pushing the boundaries on everyone’s breaking point , you are a genuine beacon of light. I’ve kicked, screamed,  and cursed obnoxiously loud over much of what I’ve witnessed this year. Felt hopeless over the suffering of my brothers and sisters,  when in my mind some of the answers to alleviate such suffering seems no more than common sense…which only drives me more nuts.

        I guess what I mean  is that I  know words from the heart when I hear them, and there is never any doubt where your words are coming from. You bring me out of the chaos of my head,  and to the heart of the matter…every time. I am focusing more in the moment lately,  where I belong. The coqui frog’s sound like birds tonight.  The flowers surrounding me followed the sun all day.

        And of course since it’s still 2020 Madam Pele woke back up because…well just because of course she did!

        Bring it on ! We can take it.

        Much love to you , and looking forward to more from you after honing those edges.


          Thanks, Bob.   So sweet of you to say. I hope Ms. Pele is just having a late 2020 grumble and nothing more!!!!  I’ve never been to Hawaii.  Though I was blessed to hear the coqui in Puerto Rico (and all the little tree frogs and bull frogs in the swamps, rivers and marshes in South Alabama where  I grew up).  Enjoy.  Love, les
