A fountain of life
Droplets rippling out, impacting on people in different ways
Water lilies reaching for light from the murky, muddy depths which nourish the roots.
A reminder that grief for one death can awaken past griefs for lost dreams, wounds, missed opportunities, disappointments, loss of others.
A reminder that our actions and words ripple out into the world we inhabit affecting others in ways observed and unobserved.
A reminder that our actions and words need to spring from a place of gratitude, compassion and love
If we can’t manage that,
At least a place of honesty and authenticity,
If we are to bring light and life to our world.

I drew this picture to honour Frances Folletta, the Volunteer Co-ordinator at Fernlea House, who died Wednesday, the 6th of July 2011.
