Deeply touched!

We didn't make it to Point Reyes.  One friend came to my house, and we journeyed ten minutes to our friend's house which is in Muir Beach.  There,  we realized we had the ocean and we had the mothers, and we walked down to the beach from her house, and sat and honored.  We walked to the Pelican Inn and enjoyed lunch, then walked to Green Gulch Farm Zen Center and sat in the beautifully scented rose garden.  We walked back up the hill and then drove to the Mountain Home Inn for wine so we could toast, and we shared a cheese plate.  It was a perfect day. The fog was in so it wasn't crowded but it wasn't cold.

I am home now and my friend calls.  A mutual friend lost her mother on Wednesday.  Many years ago I painted on silk and cut out hearts.  They were pocket size and I gave away pocket hearts.  Many of them went to Russia with a friend who worked on reconciliation.  When my friend whose mother just died went through her mother's drawers, she came across one of my hearts.  She had given it to her mother and her mother had kept it all these years.  Her mother is now lying with my silk heart over her heart.  Her arms are folded over the heart, and her mother will be buried with my heart, my silk heart, on her heart.  Am I touched?

Yes!

I am deeply touched with all we share, and the oneness that is here.  Today we kept meeting people who asked us to toast their mothers too.  I feel the mothers honored, in my heart, in all hearts, as one.
