mrsspookypants, thanks so much for reminding us that we once sat in the presence of a great and noble man. Yet somehow that seems like an oxymoron.
Rest in peace MykieDave!!
I can see MykieDave at peace, but resting? Not hardly Somehow, in my mind's eye, I'm envisioning this incredible soul, released from the limitations of the physical body, soaring ever higher and yet still reaching out to energetically touch each and every one of us on a daily basis.
As I've mentioned before, the poet, Rumi once said, "Seek for our resting place, not in the earth, but in the hearts of men." I can't think of a better or more shining example than MykieDave, for he truly lives on in the hearts of those who were touched by him.
The bond we share with MykieDave reminds me of a Celtic spiritual tradition known as the “Anam Cara.”
The Anam Cara was originally someone to whom you confessed, revealing the hidden intimacies of your life. With the “Anam Cara”, you could share your innermost self, your mind and your heart. This friendship was an act of recognition and belonging. When you had an “Anam Cara”, your friendship cut across all convention, morality and category. You were joined in an ancient and eternal way with the “friend of your soul”. The Celtic understanding did not set limitations of space or time on the soul. There is no cage for the soul. The soul is a divine light that flows into you and into your Other.
When you are blessed with an Anam Cara, the Irish believe this bond between friends is indissoluble: “This, I say, is what is broken by no chances, what no interval of time or space can sever or destroy, and what even death itself cannot part”.
“Anam Cara…Wisdom from the Celtic World”, by John O’Donohue

Holly, my thoughts are with you during this time. We miss you around here as well. I hope you stop in and let us know how you are doing!
Willow, you reminded me of that CD. I know it's around here somewhere. I have to find it so that I can listen to it again. He had such a way with stories!
