There's much anxiety and grief going round the world this past week. Everyday, we piece our broken bits together and hope to heal. This piecing-and-hoping is good. The edges will not always fit. There might be further cuts. And there will always be cracks. (Leonard Cohen says, that's how the light gets in. Sometimes the light streams in, sometimes it is harder to catch. But no matter. Let the light in.)
My heart goes out to the families who are in pain. Praying for more Light to enter your home and hearts.
And for the rest of us who are safe and healthy, it's good to be alive and doing what we do. And to be amongst you fun, funny, big-hearted folks.
An update on New Life: thank you all for your well-wishes on my sister and Baby Olive. The family's doing great. Here's a shot my sister and brother-in-law love of her:
Be very well, everyone.

Really enjoyed the honest voice of this narrator ~ a teenager let down by his mother and the foster care system, and almost-picked up through his involvement with a gang.
