I have piles of excerpts to share with you, but, as sometimes happens, life has interrupted what I wanted to say with its own message.
Yesterday morning, I was driving from my parent’s home, in the country, back to my apartment, in the city (bleh! happily, I’m leaving soon!) As I wound my way through some of Tennessee’s green, green hills and crossed a creek full of pearly fog, I caught a glow of color in the clouds above my head. I rounded a bend, and there was a rainbow, in full glory!
As if the rainbow wasn’t enough, the CD I was listening to switched to this song:
“May the Kindness” (cover by Teresa Horgan)
May the kindness that starts with you / turn full circle when it’s due / and the flame that warms your heart / burn with love as now we part
Cause true beauty grows with time / there’s no need to hide the light / and true glances reciprocate / now is the moment worth a lifetime’s wait
With a gentle healing touch / untwist this mind that once promised so much / with simplicity once more new / recognize our place in worthwhile things to do
Ancient teachings still hold water / many cultures born of this earth / with a currency not gold but love / recognize at last our equal right to burst
So share a moment, hold a hand / wipe a tear, understand / that life is borrowed, we can’t own / speed and light will bring your spirit home.
So many lines of this song pushed my poignant-feelings button; I felt like the universe was speaking to me and my current position in life (about to leave a secure, traditional job, move to a new country, and try to make a living doing what I love).
Just wanted to spread the message, in case it is speaks to any of you, wherever you are in life!
Wishing you rainbows and Irish flute music,
