Hello to you – hope this finds you well today. It’s a holiday for us here in the states. We plan to celebrate with family – cook out and visit. My favorite part of any holiday is sharing good food and catching up with people I haven’t seen in awhile!
Holidays are a time to express a micro version of what the world could be but isn’t quite yet – one big family. World unity is probably a word to chalk up to the ancient dreams of Utopia but definitely a prize to seek. It is a vision I’ve always had to see the celebration of all our differences. The people of this world working as a family. Each bringing their unique pieces of thread and fabric to construct the world quilt. For all the ways we are different, there are so many more ways we are just the same.
The spin of the World Prayer wheel gave me this, I think it’s beautiful. I had to read it through aloud more than once as the language style is not what I’m used to reading or writing:
A faintish journey do I make
As through this frazzled world I wind,
With heavy heart and weary steps,
But with determined mind.
Beseech I for a flicker of
The faith than can a mountain move,
And hold that tenet close to me,
Believing where I cannot prove.
The pow’r that comes when sinking low
To man who grasps for straw or rope,
Will clutch til has he breath no more
For where there’s life, there’s hope.
If my good turn be given to
My fellow man’s deficiency,
I’ll try to share my lowly gifts
Of Faith and Hope and Charity.

My deepest condolences to Tina Turner at the loss of her son Craig. No mother should have to lose her child this way.
Tina Turner’s eldest son, Craig Raymond Turner, has died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
TMZ reported that authorities arrived at Craig’s Studio City, Calif., home around noon on July 3 and found his body.
Craig, 59, was pronounced dead at the scene. He was in the real estate business in the Los Angeles area.
Craig was born in 1958 when his famous mother was 18 years old. His biological father is a musician named Raymond Hill. After Tina married Ike Turner, Ike adopted Craig as his own.
Tina is currently in Paris attending events associated with Paris Fashion Week events. On Tuesday, she stepped out for the Giorgio Armani Prive Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2018-2019 show.
