  1. Did you write a blessing? Share it!

    Here is mine:

    For the radio thief.

    May the song
    you are hearing even now
    fade into child’s laughter regained
    rock you home
    beyond the lure
    of early morning traps
    may you compose a symphony
    then dance to it
    content to remix
    eternity may you
    soup up a skateboard
    light as the light of day
    and may you wear new white linen
    to ride through no to yes.
