These words touch me this morning.  Perhaps they would every morning, but I'm still recovering from the death of a friend from the past, followed by Steve's operation which was frightening.   I see that the longer we live, the more we feel what happens because we realize even more strongly that our individual life doesn't go on forever.  There is grace in that.   This ability to feel is a gift, so I use it to carve valleys with rivers within and then the inner mountains are more deeply exposed.  They glisten.
