Good afternoon everyone. Bright blessings to you all.

My sweetest, dearest Lost Dog and my dearest, gifted orff on her travels Alexis, thank you both.

Yes indeed, a Mother exists on every breeze and is the smell of every flower.

There is much going on in the family for you all individually. Lost Dog the letter you wrote to our dear Alexis around drink, and your thoughts around that, the most comprehensively well written from experience piece i think i have ever read.

Today i would like to share 2 poems.

The first has come to me for the "Sisters" i have in the family. The second when i talk of ships, and oceans and captains.....i suppose the 2nd one refers to me as it could to us all.

"Hope is a thing with Feathers" by Emily Dickinson.

Hope is a thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tunes without the words,
And never stops at all.

And the sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.

I've heard it in the chillest land,
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in eternity,
It asked a crumb of me.

.....And for all those struggling to be the Captains of their ship right now?

"Invictus" by William Ernest Henley.

Out of the night that covers me
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods maybe
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms the horror of the shade.
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gait,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the Captain of my soul.

Be peaceful, be healthy and be strong. Loveness to all.
