There is a beautiful poem by Sukhvinder Sircar that spoke to me while I was going through what was easily the darkest spell of my adult life.  I hesitated to share it with you because that whole period was oh so personal, and I needed to traverse that landscape alone.  All that is changing now and I feel myself wanting to share with you words that sustained me.  I see that “look” in some of you, the look of private pain and disappointment.  In my own way I want to tell you that while I respect the path you are on, I want to help.  Maybe you too will find solace in this gentle poem.  Cheers!


Never underestimate a woman who is suffering

who seems to be making risky choices.

She is deep in lesson.

She is visiting the underground,

She is making sense of life in some invisible way.

The fragmentation in her life could be a precursor to a new resurgence.

She could well stun you with some home truths.
