    This might seem silly. But this summer my eldest daughter took her two sisters on some rides at the fair and took a picture of the three of them together. The amount of time they scream I hate you is often all I hear. A memory of them actually enjoying each other’s company is indeed something I will treasure.

    I guess the most recent one was when my entrance door jammed shut and I couldn’t get in the house. Luckily I had left the upstairs bedroom window open, a neighbor, I had never formally met, helped me with my ladder and I was small and limber enough to squeeze into the opening and slide down to safety. That same neighbor returned to help unjam the aforementioned door.

    Watching a little boy see his dad, who had been deployed, for the first time in over a year. The way they hugged reminded me about how lucky I am to have a father that is always around and here for me.

    After a long childbirth in the wee hours my newborn son was put in my arms. I felt totally connected to all people on Earth in that moment. I was so filled with love for my baby and all humanity. I will never forget that moment of deep loving connection to all.

    A memory from the 25th of October 2021. I was on the verge of a mental breakdown but my friends were there for me. Wrenn insisted on buying me water, Izzy gave me 2 hugs (which I really needed), and Ollie gave me advice about breaking down the thing I was stressing over. I don’t know what I’d do without them. We all need friends like that.

    I was on a 5-day retreat. The focus was learning an advanced practice. The retreat was on an old converted dairy farm in a remote Victorian rural area in south-west Australia. It was fairly demanding – up at 3:30 am and to bed at 11:00 pm each day. Talking was kept to a minimum. You only spoke if it was necessary. It was cold – the middle of winter. I slept in a room with 6 others. There was no contact with the outside world – no phones, no internet, no watches, nothing. I vividly recall on about the third day on a cold, windy and wet afternoon, standing out in a field alone. A few cows wandered by, minding their own business. A few birds were busy in the trees. But my gaze was on a tiny little flower near my feet. I was in awe. A question arose – “what do you have to show me?” I will never forget what followed.

    I barely dared to ask and only if it was what God wanted for me, where there could be a hundred suitable options, the universe delivered just the one optimal guy, and I knew. I will never forget that awareness. Blessed and grateful.

    The day I met my partner for the first time – I felt so happy and full of hope for the future.

    It is the memory of my son, somewhere just short of 2 years old, gazing off in the distance with a sad look. I asked what was wrong and he said, “I am forgetting what God looks like.”

    Hugging my grandmother for a photo in front of her honey suckle. Both of us smiling. I remember that day fondly. This was about four months before she passed away. I have the photo in my living room.

    6 months ago, being with my beloved brother, Kerry as he took his last breath. After 10 months of fighting honorably, courageously & with dignity he fought no more. I held his hand, told him how much I/we loved him, told him We would all be ok & it was ok to stop fighting. God, the Holy Spirit was in his room. I miss laughing, “yukking it up” with him. RIP dear brother……🙏

    The way my golden retriever would flop in warm grass for a belly rub, hobby-horse around the lawn with a favorite toy or stick in her mouth, and look for “lovies” (my wife’s word) from every person she saw.

    Being with my mother the day before she died. My daughter and her husband took me there, and I am forever grateful to them for that. What a gift! It permanently changed how I see my mother.

    The memory i have of last summer. Going to an outdoor concert and the great dj that was there spinning a mix of oldies and current jams.

    …a moment of pure tenderness,
    my heart wide open to the Universe,
    to what is the heart of God…
