back in the 60's when we were un-

that one of my biggest blessings was
our friendship and it is as strong
today as the first day we met. In all

Dear God, Where is there an angel in this chaotic world?
And in my sleep and in my question:
I see an explosion, two towers fall, a war and children running
naked and afraid. I see numbers drop on a stock chart and
helplessness rise and people angry in town halls.
OH, it isn't a dream!
And some of us are praying.
And some sit with masters on a mountain.
And some are reading books of wisdom.
And it isn't a dream!
And all the while pain is going on.
People walking with it, through it.
Alert and awake, I suppose the angels must be lurking
somewhere there --
In the middle of the collapse- while things are coming down and
people are breaking.
Because Angels are in our life --
Deep in the center of it.
In the drama of the tear down- they whisper a soft parachute --
Though you might fly right or left, or get lost,
you always land --
Enlightenment is the only destination.
There is no clock to the one journey.
It's always one flight- Crucifixion to Resurrection.
Angels are the net.
Trust the fall.

"I have known Karen for over
20 years and have never known a
sweeter person. I've never heard a
bad word from her, only kind and
friendly words. Always first to help
and lend a hand no matter what
comes up. I always feel good around
her, even when things are going bad
for me. She is and will always be my
