A Love Letter To A Stranger

Hi there.

You don’t know me. But, even though we’ve never met, we are connected.

Think of me when your heart is broken. When your spirit has been shattered. When you feel like every ounce of love and light you had has been ripped out of you. When you feel the cold chill of the gaping void left behind inside of you. When you feel alone and scared. When you’re shriveled and in a dark corner and can’t move because of the debilitating sadness you feel. Think of me.

Understand you are not alone. I am here to help you bear the burden of your pain. To absorb the emotional blow you’re taking. You don’t have to take it all on alone. Think of me and I will be there.

We may never know each other. Our eyes may never meet. We may never even step foot on the same continent. But you will feel my heart if you just reach out for me. If you call on me, I will send my love to you. You don’t have to be alone.

We are all connected. We may only know each other when we are in the deepest of despair. When we have reached the deepest depth of loneliness we can imagine. Know that it’s designed that way so that, in these moments, we may turn inward to find each other.

Find me and I will share my love with you, as you will with me when I need it. I will give you hope. I will restore your faith. Think of me and my love will help you heal.

You are not alone. We are all connected. And we are all here, to offer you love, during the moments when you need it most. Just call for us.

Robin Williams Tribute Roundup

We’ve all been processing Robin Williams’ passing over the last week. What’s interesting is that it seems that there are so many people with a story about him. On whatever level, I feel like he connected with so many of us.

And we’re now taking this awful thing that connects so many of us and, through our grief, we’re sending love, in many forms, to many people, in many different places. Love that we didn’t know was needed before. If we can create something positive from this, I believe that’s the best way we could honor someone as remarkable as Robin Williams.

He was a treasure and I’m sure there will be many more of these to follow. In the meantime, here are 10 Robin Williams tributes that made me cry this week. RIP Robin Williams, you are missed.

I believe art is an act of love. And if Robin Williams’ passing has inspired more love to be put into the world, then I believe he lived the life all of us should aspire to live.
