inviting the bell...


Body, speech, and mind in perfect oneness ---
I send my heart along with the sound of the bell.
May the hearers awaken from forgetfulness
and transcend all anxiety and sorrow.
                                                                        (Thich Nhat Hanh)

the Most High JAH!
having felt what it is to be loved
every single day.

shelter, clothes, food, clean water
i give thanks for these blessings
meditation in a peaceful space
prayers sent up
life (exhale)... 
each breath i take.

the warm bed i cuddle in at night
i see you,
never shall i forget your suffering.
great friends like you, and all the
simple things in life that make my heart sing. 


one love, always.

such lovely sentiments filled with hope and promise and humility - with music to enhance such blessings. SO nice to "be" with you this windy, cold Winter morning.
Love Gail
