Beautiful Glenn!

This is my dear friend Glenn, who is presently undergoing brain surgery to remove a tumor!!! This is a photo of a photograph that was taken the other day, just before his head was shaved!

I had a very restless night, awake from 2.30 am to around 6 one point i got up and had a snack, took some Valerian and watch tv! it's amazing what's on at 5am! I now know how to make freezer jam!!

Today will be a long one for his family...and my thoughts won't be far from him either.
Here's the poem many of us read last night.

Beannacht / Blessing
by John O'Donohue

On the day when
the weight deadens
on your shoulders
and you stumble,
may the clay dance
to balance you.

And when your eyes
freeze behind
the grey window
and the ghost of loss
gets in to you,
may a flock of colours,
indigo, red, green,
and azure blue
come to awaken in you
a meadow of delight.

When the canvas frays
in the currach of thought
and a stain of ocean
blackens beneath you,
may there come across the waters
a path of yellow moonlight
to bring you safely home.

May the nourishment of the earth be yours,
may the clarity of light be yours,
may the fluency of the ocean be yours,
may the protection of the ancestors be yours.
And so may a slow
wind work these words
of love around you,
an invisible cloak
to mind your life.

Send a prayer his way won't you!
