A beautiful photo evokes a poem
Just lookin for a little love.
A lovely song by Vusi Mahlasela. Lyrics found here.
The dust that once buried me, dulled my vision,
now sparkles like so much glitter in the shards of light.
I’ve always loved James Taylor’s lyrics. Such sweet poetry and such compelling music. I’m honored to live in the same times as this Master songwriter.
My uncle Mickey was one of the first men I met who was truly *gentle* with me and playful as I was. His hugs were so encompassing, like no danger or harm could reach me in his arms. All my childhood cares were swept away when I was with him and he made my soul rise up and catch fire. I thank God for his love, it was a wonderful gift to me and transformed my heart.
The magic of the dog.
I’ve never known a dog like Dozer. He amazes, amuses and inspires me. I thank God for him every time we embrace on my return home.
A poetic eulogy for my mother.
Lyrics by James Taylor
