Helen, this is an exquisitely beautiful and warm tribute to all of us. The only fault I have with it, is that you didn’t include yourself – because you do all these things for all of us too with your very beautiful and sensitive poetry. I can’t imagine anyone thinking you foolish about anything – or at least no more than any of the rest of us, so none of us could have any room to talk. I would love to have written this myself, but am glad you did, because you did it so much better than I could have done. Even though this is a repost from long ago, I hope sincerely that “sadness doesn’t have you in its grips” currently, and if it does, I am glad you came to the blue pages, because, as you said, this is where all the healing you spoke about takes place. Thank you for your art and heart poem.
