I support your work because, besides inspiring me, you make me believe in things I don’t believe in.

I came down with covid the week I started chemo last year and while I did somehow live to tell the tale, I can affirm you are correct to KEEP THAT TRIPLE-C AT BAY. I have never felt so flat-out wretched in my life. I'm glad that Meg is feeling better; that is a true gesture of love.

I found this so moving, and a brave affirmation of love.

This is so beautiful it made me cry. Thank you for sharing this story. The universe is full of mysteries but love is not!

My heart skipped a beat when I got to the part where Meg says she has COVID. And an eleven week cough? Not good! So how is it that this all ended in cuddles and happiness? Love. LOVE. That's not to say that love can keep all harm at bay, but it sure can work wonders. Thank you for your uplifting and inspiring words. Love to you and Meg.

Tears. There is something so moving about the love you share and the miracle of not getting the ‘vid after so clearly being exposed. And solidarity on the eleven-week cold! I just finished one that lasted ten weeks as I travel through the wild journey that is chemo. I heard you mention it once on a podcast at the beginning of my chemo regimen and wondered what that might be like. Now I know! Everything takes longer these days. All the love to you and Meg.

You and Meg have touched my heart, my spirit, so deeply that I wish you could feel it. I am 74 yrs old, a cancer survivor (5 yrs out). This piece made me so happy and so sad. I'm happy that you are still doing well and that you have such a deeply loving partnership. I'm sad that, at 74, it's likely that I will never experience that. I have loved and been loved deeply, in many ways in my lifetime - and for that I am so grateful. But I have never been fortunate enough to share a love like yours. I have a perfectly happy life and think of myself as extremely fortunate. Just no partner. I know you cherish one another. I love that you have that.

Isn't love an amazing force? Love is the answer is literal and universal.

Holy shit, I knew something was wrong. You and Meg have been on my mind for a couple weeks now. Not that I don't think of you both often, but these thoughts appeared out of nowhere with cloud over them. I try to not long distance worry, I try to let people have their privacy and trust that what they want to share, they will. So now I know, and I'm so glad both of you are feeling better. Note to Meg: Don't take it in. Let your hand filter it out the back of your hand, or crumble it into harmless dust. Blessed be, you lovely people.

thank you for sharing about protecting your immune system. I have a primary immunodeficiency and several serious autoimmune diseases. After a near death experience this year, I’m terrified of getting an infection this cold/flu/covid season. Thanks for the solidarity. 🙏🏼 It hurts my soul when I hear people being flippant about covid and colds. I don’t have that luxury.

Honestly, I grew up in a household where anything aside from western allopathic medine was considered a waste of time. That is, until I was introduced to an energy worker who helped when all else failed-- more than once. I believe. We see so little here on earth. As humans, there is magic we'll never be able to fully explain. We aren't meant to "understand" it all-- not really. There is a deep magic in loving connection, and sometimes, just sometimes, we get to hear stories like yours. And my gosh, aren't they marvelous? Sending blessings. Thank you for sharing. xx steph
