What do you want?


It’s simple.  Really simple.  I heard it described once like this.

We need a witness to our lives.  There are a billion people on the planet, what does any one life really mean? But with a friend, you’re promising to care about everything.  The good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things, all of it, all of the time, every day.  You’re saying ‘Your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it.  Your life will not go unwitnessed because I will be your witness.

I’ve spent the past week or so feeling stunned. Paralyzed. The one “please help” I managed to say… ignored.

My deepest gratitude to those who saw a need and offered to witness and to care.  For sharing yourselves, your stories, your songs, your warm cookies, your smiles and laughter.  Thank you.
