the road there wound through curving, asxending, descending winding through beautiful country, homes all just Fine on many acres. Further out from Olive Highway, the beginning of large ranches and then, the Olive ranches....HUGE sprawling holdings of miles of Olive trees. Towering Gateways of rock and wrought iron. One, a...

the first words of Metta...may you be Safe. recently, often, i "accidentaly" trip the side bar of Sam Baker's Mercy and then pause the time of it, to listen, eyes closed. just listening, because watching often is just so much to bear and i can't i am so grateful for US. more than i can say, without sounding uhhhh, well, more than i can say. More than i can say. LOVE to you, Peggy, as you prepare to set out...so much. So much love to you

it has. gone so very very bad so very very fast. what to do.
your love is strong. Always. and received and held
Hill love flies. yes. The pennant..it IS. I'll find packing for it in the next days. it will come. As is.
i'm not sure Love needs to be trusted in. I think it's given without any sense of trust ??? we give it because we can't help it. It just is there. Received or not.

here i am, days later, off and on thinking about the Story of this post, ? What is the Story? there are maybe 8 Stories? and maybe they all went home with new Stories? i just love the questions this caused for me...i'm spending time trying to really understand people. one thing i wondered is maybe it was a hope you had in gathering this group to your table, a hope for an outcome? and maybe they sensed it whether consciously or not and being just new to eachother not been able to participate? Were they new to you too?
