An Inspirational Jump Start

Dear Mary, 

Your lines "You don't have to be good, you just have to..." have been an inspirational jump start that I have used in my writing groups for years. These words led us to consider our purpose and our passions in the world, no matter our challenges or our regrets. "Wild Geese" helped illumine my way through grieving the death of my son. I could "stop walking through the desert on my knees" and figure out what to do with my "wild and precious life." "The Journey"-- "determined to save the only life (I) could save"-- has been a mantra of insight, that my survival is sacred as well as my love.

May you be comforted as you have comforted others.

Thank you and bless you.
Wendy Brown-Baez
