I hear the chatter of the monkey mind and the struggle to silence all that chatter. Seeking the comfort of the good mother with her sweet tea of inner peace and guidance to resolve the child's conflict.


I hope things quiet down soon and that comfort, peace, warmth is there for you always. You deserve that. As ALWAYS, your writing is pure magic.


Thanks, all, for the well wishes and the feedback!
