a soul conversation

i rejoice,
with you,
in how
across
the seeming distance,
we find
& touch
one another.

Oh! When I saw this drawing my spontaneous reaction was: What is this? Two big empty spaces, empty like tabula rasula, and a kind of bridge, very narrow in the middle, but a bridge... Wow, there are possibilities after all! To fill the void! To shorten the distance!
Soul conversations are like chocolate, like hot soup on a cold day - they should be cherished like gold if they appear! They should be sought after! I had one some days ago and it was so good!!!
Thanks for making me appreciate it even more!

I was so excited to hear of the book and can't wait until it is published- it will make a great gift for those who appreciate art and those who appreciate wisdom. Can't wait!

You have found & touched me so, Rachel. You are the gift that keeps on giving.

I love the way those sweet hands reach out for one another & connect & hold, with all the open space in between. Such beauty here.
