A New Light


A light went on in the world today. Fiona turned it on at 2:41 AM.

I guess as lights go, it isn’t shinning very brightly at the present time, but she is probably resting after her ordeal. The light will get brighter as the days, weeks, months and years go by, as more and more people fall under her influence. Their lights, which have been fading of late, will visibly brighten and those lights in turn will bring light into the lives that they touch.

I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Fiona yet, but I hope that I will by the end of the weekend. I have seen the effect on her parents and if the light in their eyes is any indication, I am in for a treat!

We just never really know the effect that our being here has on those around us. I suspect that the biggest influence we have is one that we never personally witness. Those that we interact with will interact with others who will interact with others… Well, you get the idea. It is the seven degrees of separation all over again. You my friend are just the tip of the iceberg. Not the dirty, greyish, fishy smelling tip, which is covered with seagull guano. No, you are the 90% that is the beautiful, mesmerizing  blue-green which hints of even greater complexity just under the surface.

I spent some time today with Hurricane and Tornado and my light brightened. My body energy faded and I am still looking for that harmonica, but the light is strong. Tornado shows infinite patience with me when I don’t understand what he is trying to say. Mind you, he did punch me in the eye five or six times. Hmmmmm…maybe he isn’t that understanding. Hurricane is at the age where he is testing his boundaries. I have him totally fooled though. There are no boundaries at Poppas!

Welcome to the world Fiona! May you light the path for others to follow and may it help light your way when you are in the dark. You are already the light in your parent’s eyes. May your light shine brightly for a long time to come.
