My Eyes So Soft Don’t surrender your loneliness so quickly. Let it cut more deep. Let it ferment and season you as few human Or even divine ingredients can.

Truth is blossoming love, flowing freely and embracing all of us in warmth and a continuous feeling of Be-longing. Love is the truth of a touch that doesn’t stop even when we are separated by many miles, our hearts remain connected in support of all we do here–no matter what appears to be going on… Continue reading Good Monday Morning…Truth is…
