This is what unconditional, infinite love looks like.

This is what the deepest exchange between souls looks like.

This is what peering into a lifetime looks like.



Daily, we move through so much more than our physical senses can perceive.

What woke me at 1:00AM and compelled me to write this?

I can viscerally feel that it is the same force, the same energy, the same Love that joined Gma’s soul, and likely many others, in silent communion with Jack. The same force that forever breathes Love and Life into all of us, every one, from the moment of our creation.

Some may say, “Yes, Carl, you imagined this.”
But my soul feels otherwise.

Those precious moments have a purpose beyond a touching encounter. Beyond words. Beyond conscious thought. Agnes had something to convey. And Jack was tuned to receive.

Flow. My soul felt it then. My soul feels it now.

Imagination? I think not.
But if it is, I’m eternally grateful for a rich one.
