This is too precious a moment not to share it with a wider audience. Danny gave me the courage to draw every day and now to share his insomnia and best of all his wonderful son, who I feel I’ve watched grow up…well deep bow of gratitude is all I can say. Have a Wonderful Wednesday and I’ll be back with my own words next week. For now, I have to get out in this Indian Summer Day in November and do some pastoral research of my own.
I woke up at 4 am and this was in my inbox. I watched it in the dark and it filled my heart.
When I decided to share it with you, I thought I’d make a joke of it. Call it, “Cure for Insomnia” or some such.
But every time I watch it, it fills my heart again. Fills it with peace, with sweetness, with raw simplicity. I think of my boy, standing on a hillside in Sicily, filming this on his phone, hanging on till the end of an extraordinary moment.
I love the beauty he sees. I hope you like it too.
