Goodbye for now…my friends

Good-bye for now my friends…Scotland calls my name. I will be back…oh, sometime in the future.

Until I come back…I leave you with this bit of Celtic wisdom:

“Wild Geese”

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting–
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

    Hey! Have you seen or heard from Caryn lately? I was thinking about her but have no idea where she is or what she is doing.
    Let me know! erin

    I haven’t heard from Caryn in a while. I see her husband every great now and then…but other than that. It’s been like forever. I wonder how she’s doing too. Let me know if you ever find out! By the way…how are YOU doing?
