Living here in South Louisiana, my mind has been drifting to the oily devastation of our coastline. My heart is heavy for two reasons this month: Of course I am feeling so very sad as that horrible day, June 25th, nears us. I know that Michael's spirit is all around me every day, and our spirit lives forever..."I am forever" as He said. But I miss him, I cannot stop those feelings from washing over me, wave after wave. I look at his photos, I watch his videos, and most importantly, I read "Dancing the Dream" by Michael, another time. His wonderful, insightful, beautiful and sweet words embrace me. I feel as though I am wrapped in a warm, soft, snuggly blanket as I read this book!
But then, I am horrified as I see those news reports about all those innocent animals washing up covered in oil, dead or dying. I know that Michael would be crying, as I am, about this catastrophe. So many people's lives will be ruined by this, and we will be negatively affected for years to come. This will affect the world's oceans, because we are all connected...one world, one planet. Michael said it best: "You're just another part of me."
