MELANCHOLY may seem unlike a miracle. Yet MELANCHOLY is an aspect of our miraculous ability to transcend time and space. When I feel MELANCHOLY I am visiting some point in the past that brought me joy or peace. Perhaps that feeling of MELANCHOLY is a deep desire to return to a simpler time or a time when those who no longer inhabit the physical realm were still by my side. While this may seem sad, it is in Truth the desire of my soul to re-experience something. It is an inner stirring calling me to something greater. It is a stirring that calls me to bring the joys, and imprints of past relationships to new endeavors. It is a call to live the gifts of those who have transcended, to do them honor by giving life to what they may have shared with me. It is a desire to recall the playfulness of childhood and reenact it in this now moment. MELANCHOLY is a miracle that calls me to the NOW moment in a very special way.
