Celestial In My Soul
              “...I played my best for Him...”
 
Angelic drumbeats
Through streams  of cascading winds
Echo in my soul
 
And then there I am
At the gates of Heaven now
Sans the drums with me
 
Only the smile He gave me
And the promised paradise
Free from the pains of the earth
Rum pum rum pum my heart beats
In rhythm with my rib cage
As I breathe in and breathe out
The celestial air of life
Now eternal in my soul

Dear Nelson,
Please accept my condolences on the passing of your friend.
We are all in Oneness together, I believe.
Perhaps we all play our roles with each other and maybe even again ...

Thank you Kurt.
As Ram Dass said
“We’re all just walking each other home”.

Had a great time with Amelia and Jason. There’s a chance we’ll see you later this year.

Take care. Hello to Linda.
