A Prayer to Deora

Hallowed Deora,

Cherished mother and guardian of all,

Thank you for your constant care.

You guide our thoughts, protect our hearts, and nurture our spirits. 

Your grace satiates our soul.

You banish prideful doubt and fear through your all-powerful, all-encompassing love. 

When shadows fall, your infinite patience and gentle compassion prevail.

Open our eyes to each moment's unfathomable gifts, opportunities, comfort, and peace.

Show us how precious we are, how to share your loving-kindness and bountiful goodness more fully, how to give without expectation.

Teach us to forgive.

We turn to you with every need. Our lives attest your glory and dominion.

We trust your unwavering truth

and always will.

My moment of profundity: Marcin Patrzalek - It doesn't get any better

Today's podcast is laden with raw emotions after a seemingly mundane experience I had that affected me greatly.  I was choked up most of the time and had to cut out lots of redundant gushing. I share it for the sole purpose of bringing a virtuoso artist to the notice of some who may not know of him otherwise.

On May 28 I hung out in a small group Zoom sesh led by a friendly funloving guy who just might be the greatest musician alive. Down the road I may cite the experience as  one of the most profound moments of my life.
