        "Those who love, loving pour forth radiance..." and I am still feeling the love and radiance from the 30 or so beautiful people who shared yourselves with me here at Bridge Park. I am so blessed and grateful to all of you who came, danced, sang, sat, ate, and hugged. There wasn't much opportunity to talk to everyone, but know that just being together as we were has filled my heart with tears of humility and quiet joy. I loved being able to drum, dance, or sit as my body needed.
        
The residents who came have asked more questions and one looked it up on the Internet while we were eating because she likes to know what she is doing. Some said it was fun, some said they liked watching, and one has repeated several times how calming it was and how peaceful. I said to Maxine, who was sitting in the chair near the fireplace and dancing with her arms and upper body, that she looked like she was really enjoying herself Sunday. She said enjoying what? I reminded her of the Dancing and she said "was I there?". I told her yes and described it a little and she replied "Oh, I guess I'll have to come again sometime." So folks were reached on many levels even when they don't remember it!
        I loved the way a sacred space was created with so many banners and flags. I sat in that empty room alone this morning for a few minutes just being with the atmosphere left by all that happened there. That room will never be the same. Bridge Park will never be the same.
        Many thanks for all who gave so lovingly of time, effort, and energy to make this happen, from the very beginnings of a few to growing, expanding, and including all who came. You know who you are, and so do I.
        "In my lifetime, Peace, Peace on Earth"
