To My Mentors

Speaking with you is good for me, and despite the time between our talks, I always walk away better.  Not necessarily without some soul work to do, some new focus, some clear direction.  But these things are very good for me.  When we talk, I feel like your life is an open box full of gifts to me, and I never take that for granted.  The word brilliance comes to mind when I consider how kind and sparkling and generous you are with your time and your wisdom and your words.  You say more than I deserve to hear, sometimes, I think, more than I can live.  There is weight to your offerings to me in our conversations.  I’m grateful for the life underneath those words and for how open-handed you are as a spiritual friend, director, and guide.
