A thing or two on Covid 19. I’d rather not have any folks die. Period. Full stop. End of story.

So, here I sit, loving everyone, loving everyone, for reel, taking breaths and holding folks who are at risk in my heart and  loving my neighbors and extending my heart, expanding the opportunity for art and connection and all that brings comfort and joy to our lives.

Love thy neighbor as thyself, because we are our neighbor.

Toward that end I’m sharing some poetry that reconnects us to our inner child and the magnificence of life and joy and power.

The wonders of spoken word connected to memory and the love of that perfect spark of the heart that is with us in all our days.
