Near the snow, near the sun, in the highest fields
See how these names are fêted by the waving grass
And by the streamers of white cloud
And whispers of wind in the listening sky:
The names of those who in their lives fought for life,
Who wore at their hearts the fire's center.
Born of the sun they traveled a short while towards the sun, And left the vivid air signed with their honor.
from I think continually of those who were truly great
“I’ve just spent a month in Los Angeles helping my failing mom.
Your concert was so healing for me—like praying.”
