Dance with the Angels was written about an earlier time in my life when I was going through a separation, and was mired down in depression. I’ve always had faith that no matter how bad life gets, beauty and grace always surrounds us, if we just stay open to the present moment. That’s what it means to dance with the angels. We dance with life, because we never know where the journey will take us. Over three years ago, I met my soulmate and we are now blissfully married. I have never been happier and more in love.

If we can remember that everything is impermanent, even our losses, we can stay in touch with what’s beautiful in life and remain open to the unexpected.

As Mary Oliver writes, “Doesn’t everything die at last, and too soon? Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
