I infuse every letter, every comma, with prayers. Sometimes it makes me cry, not out of fear, but because the love is so strong. How humbling to feel it undiluted, shining, like rocks in the desert after a rain, to know love as the most important thing, to remember this as I keep on living.

Do take care of yourself and your spirit in these difficult times. We CAN do this hard thing -- together.
