That is very understandable, Lifeboat. I think this is an especially difficult time for people with compassion and empathy. And you are certainly one of those. But as you know, you are not alone. Many of us are struggling through the situations in the world that we can't seem to avoid seeing and hea...

I have re-read this again and see it a different way now. I have dug holes and crawled in them and tried to pull the hole in after me, shut myself away from the world when the storm raged. It is okay to become invisible from time to time if you feel you need to shut the world out. Emerge when you ar...

This is really sad Lifeboat. :( And yet, when we are in that place, seeking shelter from the storm, sometimes there feels like there is no hope, and that the sun will never shine again, or things won't be as they once were. I am glad you use your talent to touch the dark places as there is always so...

The family was gathered for Thanksgiving Dinner, From Grandma and Grandpa to Grandbabies-- We were all there. Grandma was cheerfully bustling about; She put the turkey in early for Grandpa to take out. While we stood and sat and milled all around Chatting, catching up, with laughter and frowns, Gran...

Thank you, (((Lifeboat))). Janice, having not met in person (yet), but touched spirit to spirit and recognized each other as sisters, in you I found love and a home. You are the greatest gift any seeker of love and acceptance could ask for. Everything you so eloquently said about me can be said of y...

Where Eagles Nest

This "Peak" has brought me much healing through sharing and the reaching out of kind hearts to me when I needed it most. I first came here as a "Stranger", the name chosen from the meaning of my first name in Greek, which I felt suited me, but I soon found a home. The words of Kahlil Gibran say it a...

There is a lot to contemplate in this poem. At first I saw it as sad and tragic, but then I noticed hope. Perhaps the spark of light from the corner of your eye. "Night never ends where there is no beginning" says to me that you realize that you must begin in order for the night to end. Dark shadows...
