I just watched Paul Simon sing Bridge Over Troubled Water at the DNC. It was moving considering the context. But as I listened to the words, I felt a whole new meaning from them. I have been through a rather dark spell. I do not deny it. Some anger, some depression, some doubt, some blaming fingers eager to point out why I “am feeling this way.” Sure, I know we are living in the world of contrasts. Sure I know we have to experience what we don’t want to know what we do want blah, blah, blah. But the truth is…I was feeling dark. I was feeling out of my light. And it didn’t feel good. It felt…bad. And I didn’t like it. I reached out to friends who could help because I know community matters so much in helping us to re-balance and hold the balance.
