I am not cursing or speaking in a foreign language. “Healthy Greetings” is a fair translation of the above phrase. Nope. Dope. Seriously. In a world gone viral I sincerely wish you all health and wholeness. John Donne’s lines resonate from long ago, “Ask not for whom the bell tolls. It tolls for thee.” Let’s just delight in this gem of a poem’s whole text, shall we?White Cliffs of Dover - Wikipedia

No man is an island,
Entire of itself.
Each is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thine own
Or of thine friend’s were.
Each man’s death diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee.

Someone’s mother, father, brother, sister, child, cousin, friend, coworker, spouse, or grandparent, etc. is washed away from the continent of humanity. Unity and integrity are embedded in these thoughts: mankind is a tapestry fabric in which each of us is a thread. When one thread deteriorates, withers, or dies, the fabric becomes weaker. If not today, then further on when another and another thread disappears. Our tapestry then hangs loosely on the bones that support it, like a man dying of hunger, a sagging sack of skin.Two emaciated survivors stand behind a barbed wire fence in the ...

The birds they sang
At the break of day
Start again
I heard them say
Don’t dwell on what
Has passed away
Or what is yet to be
[Take a breath hear to savor this image.]
Yeah the wars they will
Be fought again
The holy dove
She will be caught again
Bought and sold
And bought again

Lyrics alone don’t do the song justice, so go to Pandora and listen to Leonard’s chanteur beauty. We will wait as one waits for a feast, with pleasant anticipation. So, you are back now, yes? Let’s continue. One comment on Leonard’s You Tube video touched me…
“Your voice was a ragged blanket for my trembling soul; you were my ground, my safe and sound.” dynamn .  Yes, Leonard Cohen was a golden thread in the tapestry of mankind. We all have our favorite artists who have passed on, leaving only their art behind. We grieve and rejoice in their imperfect beauty because it touches us deeply.Beautiful Light Painting Photos of a Young Woman Rising From the ...
In times of crisis we look for the symbols and images that lift us up above the dark valley we are mired in. Fred Rogers always said, “Look for the helpers”, and I agree. Look for the real authorities, not the guys who insists that he’s the smartest guy in the room. The smartest guy in the room never says he’s the smartest guy in the room. The most arrogant guy does this shilling song and dance. We do not need him. He needs us to keep looking at him or he disappears along with his t.v. ratings. Real authority knows the value of life and grieves for its loss. Real authority knows the Author, from whom authority flows and is anchored in. Real authority is not proud, does not boast, well, wait a second… Transcendent Love - YouTube
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.Love Never Ends I 1 Corinthians 13:4-10 (Lyric Video) - YouTube
But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror;
Is it possible that real Authority is love, the love Paul speaks of in I Corinthians? That our healing comes from loving and being loved? The refining fire we are wading through these days is surely separating the dross from the gold.United Precious Metal Refining, Inc.
Healthy Greetings to you, friend.
