What do you call a magical dog?
Thank you David for the laughter, love, and such hearty support.
David died on Friday, February 5, 2021.
I got a chance to dance with David… not his Argentine Tango… rather my ecstatic dance. He came to Asheville, and we danced and danced and danced. My friends here took an immediate liking to him, as did I when he showed up for our circle calls.
His love of dance took on new enthusiasm after that day, as he would tell me years later. I’m glad for that. He certainly touched my work and life in so many ways. And that continues.
It’s been rare in my life to have emotionally available men. It’s been even rarer to have men that actively supported my work in the world. David behind the scenes would open EVERY SINGLE EMAIL I SENT. He’d comment about what he knew mattered to me, even if it was between the lines.
He shared generously: His time, his energy, his talent, his enthusiasm, and his treasure. With a recent donation he said he really wanted me to feel how much support there is for what we’re co-creating here.
I include this here because for things in life that require courage… it really helps to feel like we’re not in it alone, that someone sees and knows and cares and puts the energy WITH us. David was one of the key vibrational leaders who have done that with me over the years. It’s a sacred role, and I’m wet eyed tuning to the many, many times he seemed to show up when I needed just the kind of boost he could give.
There’s so much more. I feel drawn to pause here for others of us to share here or in their private hearts a smile, a tear, a memory of David.
But before that, I want to share another joke, because that’s something David would like – and this one gave him a big laugh when I shared it with him a long while ago:
How many ears does Captain James T. Kirk of the Star Trek Enterprise have?
His left ear, his right ear, and his final front-ear.
Love you Dave!
