my heart 
with all of you who


Medium and the World!

in this 
Love. Peace. Hope.

The photo I share with you tonight is of a candle that is very special to me. It was given to me by my yoga teacher, Lillah, on the last day of a year spent traveling four hundred miles from my home for weekend teacher training sessions. Tonight I light its flame, for the first time, to share with all of you who give your hearts and souls to this craft of writing that is the air we breathe. Lillah also taught us, her students, this blessing:

May the long time sun
shine upon you,
all love surround you,
and the divine light within you,
guide your way on.


i affirm that i am light. Whenever there is darkness, i will shine.

A special thank you to Tremaine L. Loadholt and Ayesha Talib Wissanji .

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
