Reprinted on the occasion of my son’s 18th birthday.
Without my son, Deeply Awake would not have been written. He has instinctively known of its value in a way I didn’t, and has saved it, and me, time and time again from the paralysis I suffered from my most rabid and lethal critics.
He believes in my worth, and the validity of the fruits of my labor, and has taught me what it means to be loved, supported and respected. This is a mutual reality for us, and our little family carries on now into new, gentler territory.
On a day with encourages looking back and assessing the journey, I see we are stronger for our former challenges, and happy now because we cared for and about each other as we faced our individual demons over this last year.
I hope this offering helps you to understand what Deeply Awake offers all, and you, freely and without condition.
