Thread Name: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
There is much here deserving of comment, but I'm going to restrict myself to reflecting on Janie's post of 29th. I have referred to 'Jane's Rainbow' as 'our' thread for a while now, but, in truth, it's been almost as hard to 'relinquish the captaincy' as it has been to let Jane go. I felt it remained my responsibility to keep the thread alive; drive it along. I now understand, completely & utterly, for the first time, that my stewardship (Thank you, Janie) is a burden from which, as of this moment, I am relieved. I become one of the Crew; one of many, getting on with my daily duties. We have no rank, no special privileges. What we DO have is each other. Janie expressed it so eloquently: " The wonderful magic is that when called up, the ship and crew will appear immediately to any who summon it, not on the distant horizon from whence it might take days to join, but right here, right now, whenever that now is".
       I apologise for underestimating your Love, Determination, Loyalty & Compassion.
       I/we are in the very best of Hands,
                                                            With Love,
                                                                           Nigel.
