Thank you all from my heart. It is beautiful to me to say your names and slowly read your words aloud. We have been wanderers apart these long months, I on my path, you on yours. From this day I look forward to traveling together.
Sherry, I am so very happy to meet you. I have always found my greatest challenges to be my greatest gifts, if not at first, then at last. Pam, how are you? I see that we shall have much to talk about!
Julie, may I join with Pam in wishing you a very happy birthday to come? I have been far away, but am very grateful to be here now.
Ember, how do you do? I have heard so much about you from my husband, and I hope to hear much more. Happy birthday to you Suzanne! I think you wrote to me once? It is a pleasure to meet you. Hello Jacqueline, then we both are among the home-leavers.
Alice, thank you for your very kind words. I so look forward to knowing you. Here's to our future together! I am delighted to meet you David. You are most perceptive. Let's talk about the emptiness together. That is such a lovely name Asta. It makes me think of the starry heavens. The honor is truly mine.
How generous you are dear Ruth. Here we are again together, friends through it all. How do you do Al? As one simple person to another, I am not so very sure I can explain the Conversation myself! But can we either one truly live without it? Katrina, no one is more surprised than I! And may God bless you.
As you say Julie, it is the spirit that makes a home. Thank you for coming back. If I have left my body behind, that is how we are all here together now to share in the spirit of the Conversation. It was the only way.
I want to visit with every one of you in turn, one day after another, and explore our questions together. Would that be alright? I'm afraid I'm not very good at machines, and I am completely dependent on the help of friends. But with your help and patience, I look forward to joining in your conversation as we make our journey home.
