A Winner and a Big Thank You

You bless my life every day with your beautiful faraway friendships
and the warm understanding that we are a tribe
that understands each other; that thrives on beauty and love and growing.

I don't think I could ever drive home how frequently I feel the wonder of this
how much I give thanks for this paper cup phone we've got going on that spans continents
and cultures....
we are neighbors all the same.

I've gotten advice from you here,
visited you on your own digital spaces and smiled and cried with your triumphs and
I've been sustained by your support and
lifted by your encouragement

I will not try and fumble my pale words any more, suffice it to say
that you rock my fucking world.

As for the contest, we do have a winner -
hit it, random number generator!!!


me with your info, dear woman
and thank you ALL
for entering this giveaway -

I loved reading all of your wintry words -
they made me even more excited about the coming chill
and the gifts of going inward.

With Love,

P.S. - published at 11:11 AM PST to avoid confusion!!
