Dear Friend,

I am uncommonly happy today,

and tremendously grateful

and feeling fantastic about all sorts of possibilities and permutations.

I thank you for that.

And in the midst of this joy, I am cupping my hands

to hold the family of my high school friend, dead of cancer

and the anger and vituperation

that seems to have eaten America

and the sorrows and joys of the world

of those I know and do not know.

Sit with me here and I will hold these things

and when I can’t bear it any more

I know you will hold it for me.

Thank you, thank you.

Amen.
