Welcome to Keeping the Dream

Written by on April 13, 2012 in Conversations on the Healing Journey with 0 Comments

After a long absence I am returning to writing and singing, creating and dreaming. The last time I sang anywhere publicly was almost three years ago, one month before a very dear friend of mine died, after a long bout with cancer. Before that I lost my beloved sister to cancer. It was too much. I haven’t sung since.

Just last week another dear friend died suddenly. No one saw it coming. And something ignited within me. I look at their lives cut short, and I think that is wrong. It’s just wrong.

And I realized that I could not add to that wrongness with the wrongness of my quitting. Not just a recent project I had considered dropping, but this path I had started walking years ago. They all believed in me. I cannot turn my back on that.

So I will sing and I will write and I will continue to ask questions and seek answers…and dream. They would want me to.
