i can't think of a title..........

been one of those weeks - and i was floundering badly. i made a call - all i said on the machine was "i need you". in minutes, he called back and yesterday i met him at noon. i was sitting in the meditation garden when he came in, and i could feel something deep inside me let go. i stood up and moved into his embrace and he sighed deeply, holding me tight.

we talked for about an hour or so over some fresh seafood and then he drove us up into this tiny community college. he parked the car and took my hand, leading me behind the big, old administration building and down across the rolling lawn - to a small stone bench.

the bench sits on the side of a cliff fall and the ocean was crashing on the rocks below. a large inlet pool filled with smaller rocks, water crystalline in its clarity, seaweed in long strands being swept in a languid and swirling dance by the ebb and flow. we sat for about 30 minutes. at some point i cried for a few minutes and he cried with me.

we walked back to his car, drove to his church where my car was parked, hugged tightly and i went back to work.

this is my mentor - and yesterday he gave me exactly what i needed. no platitudes. no this doesn't matter. no this too shall pass.

he gave me his special spot. and an ocean dancing. and a sense of what is right in this amazing world.

You cannot conceive the many without the one.

Its always good to have someone in your life who realises that you need a lighthouses more than a destination for life's voyage.

Experience is all about finding quality that complements and enhances the emotional state. I am so glad you have found it with a friend and in a setting that creates the significance the moment truly deserved.

warm xx
