Let us listen

to each other's stories,

let us pay attention

to the heartbeat of another,

let us inspire ourselves

by the tales we tell.


For memory can be a gift

when offered sincerely,

our accounts can be witness

to our common humanity,

our dreams can be the hope

that pulls us together.


So many strands:

sinews for weaving

the web of community,

secure in the knowledge

that what we have shared

will continue to bind us.




I smile when I get feedback.
