    Highlights of a low-lit week
    As good a song as you'll ever hear, I promise: Warm and Sunny Days by The Dears [hear it].

    Discovering The Dears has been a highlight of my week. Another highlight - an email from Pat, who rediscovered me after five years via a search engine. She has also penned a deeply poignant lyric, which John Bell put to music, a standout song on the latest Wild Goose music collection, I Will Not Sing Alone. Like The Dears' song, it gives pure voice to the spirit emerging, bruised, from anguish:

    In this darkness
    I do not ask to walk by light;
    but to feel the touch of your hand
    and understand that sight is not seeing.

    In this silence
    I do not ask to hear your voice;
    but to sense your Spirit breathe
    and so bequeath my care to your keeping ...
