I sent an email thanking Chris and Frieda for yesterday. I haven't asked her but I am going to place a section of her response here because I think she captures something of what it is to gather love, energy and family in one place.
Yesterday's brunch truly defined a "house warming" in my mind. I never bestowed much thought onto the term. I can whole-heartedly say that I understand it now, having experienced the energy, love, and enthusiasm from Sunday. The house is happier after yesterday; I can *feel* it! It's going "yippeeeEEE!!!!" :)
Everyone should be as fortunate as Chris and I to anoint their homes with such a glow. :)
I feel my house participating in the glow, and perhaps I want to invite yours into the circle too. I feel us all as a warm fire, and now, I recall a children's story I wrote many years ago called "Smoke Signals of Heart."
I missed seeing the meteors last night and I hope there are a few around for tonight, but maybe I was already so lit with warmth, I couldn't absorb any more.
Joy, Peace, and Sharing for Us All!!
