If Neil Gaiman writes it, I will be reading it.

The vivid imagery and poetic nature of your post truly resonates with me. The idea of dreams as a bridge between our conscious reality and the vastness of our inner universe is both profound and grounding. It’s a beautiful reminder of the interconnectedness of everything - from the vastness of our planet to the minutiae of our own individual lives. The concept of Earth as a sentient being is also deeply thought-provoking; it makes one wonder about our role in this grand tapestry of existence.

Your dream, juxtaposed with the tragic reality of sudden losses, serves as a touching testament to the cyclical nature of life. The way you describe souls arriving and departing from Earth is both heartwarming and heart-wrenching, providing a gentle affirmation that while life's journey may have its inevitable ends, the essence of our being continues in myriad forms.

Thank you for sharing such a personal and evocative reflection. It's a reminder that even in the face of loss, there's always a glimmer of hope and love intertwined with the mysteries of existence.

You touched my heart.

You have touched my heart this Sunday evening and I’m grateful.

In the melody

of my soul,

you're welcome,

making me whole.

If we never embrace


how can we possibly




are subtle murmurs

behind closed eyes,

revealing the unseen,

hidden until brought

into light.
