Aloha e Krista,
Hearing the program about the depth and mystery of depression, our human experience, the words of Parker Palmer about the soul in the wilderness brought to mind a gift I received in the midst of three days where I could not rise from my bed. I somehow scrowled these words.

My soul
wild and free
forever and ever
fluid and rock
naked and sharp
rich and intangible
willing and patient
deliberate and laughing
greater and shadowy
insistent and subtle
always present

I had been reading Thomas Moore's book "Care of the Soul", which encouraged me to see depression as a gift and not an enemy. My being is much deeper as a result of coming to appreciate depression-melancholy, the darkness, the depths.
Thank you for a wonderful program.
aloha pumehana,
