“Not Alone” by Barbara Leonhard

Loneliness

an illusion

we’re always connected

by threads of light –

dreamt and drawn

this webbing cradles

our minds

our hearts

our souls

like bones

that form a whole

we’re not alone

if only we can see

our connections in time

and space

without squinting.

    Barbara I love the way you wrote this piece about our connectivity. I believe nothing is a coincidence. I too agree that we are all connected and we would likely be surprised just how much. Lovely vivid piece about connectivity with each other. Congratulations again on becoming the new editor of MasticadoresUSA. Hugs, Joni

        You are quite accomplished on your own Barbara and have achieved so much. I know Gabriela wouldn’t have been ok with letting go of this magazine until she felt Juan had someone who would do a wonderful job as she is too professional to leave anyone hanging. I do have faith in you and the Director obviously did or you wouldn’t be here. I am happy for you. It is lots of work. Blessings to you. ❤️🤗🦋

      2. Joni, you’re such a support! I do love it so far! It takes time to set up posts and communicate with authors, etc, but it feels natural to me, a good fit.

        I just read a new poet today and I shared MasticadoresUSA to him along with a few others. I will spread the word. You will be bombarded before you know it. Big hugs and enjoy the rest of your week. Thank you for your kind words too, they mean a lot. ❤️🤗
