As summer begins its inevitable end, I’d like to send you a few postcards with the usual thought of “Wish You Were Here.”
I wish you were here in the bright sunshine of divine love, cooled by breezes of mercy, calmed on shores of peace, invigorated by waters of purpose, and delighted by gardens of generosity. I wish you were here, enjoying the fruit of faith while adventuring in hope.
During this summer of 2020, amid sickness and fear, violence and viruses, riots and rallies, wildfires and hurricanes, distancing and confusion, sorrow and tension, I hope and pray that you have experienced moments of forgiveness, of kindness, of sanctuary, of beauty, and of joy. I invite you, even now, to come to the Heart of Love — the Sacred Heart of Reality — for respite and renewal. Here, may you feel the radiant light that no darkness can overcome, see the vast vistas of creativity and possibility, feast on tender words of merciful compassion, and relax in the warm goodness of real love, love that is richly blossoming and bearing good fruit for you here, no matter how difficult your living may be.
It’s good to be here.
Sending you greetings from grace, I offer to you these souvenirs from my own little moments of peace and wisdom, inviting you to live large in littleness, to come and refresh in divine love, so that you will never forget how good it is to be here, a living human with endless hope.
May you recognize and enjoy the blessings in your life, those blooming and ripening here and those held for you in eternal love.

Although crippled by disease, I'm fully alive in love. I write about the terrible beauty and sacred wonder of life, while living with physical disability and severe dependency. A revert to the Catholic faith through atheism, I'm not afraid to ask life's big questions. I explore what it means to be fully human through my weekly blog and have written a book: It's Good to Be Here, published by Sophia Institute Press.
