This painting was created jointly by everyone who attending our most recent Wind River Cancer Wellness Retreat. It is truly a Flag of Love.
And to take it one step further, a friend wrote a poem to go along with the painting. Thank you Bill Repucci for your creative and colorful words.
"Friends come together like the lines on a mesa
Different colors, joined for a purpose
Flowing, growing, showing the world their beauty
Joining in rhythm, slowly rising, slowly falling
Red, green, yellow; mix me together and growing my glowing color
Join me with you, see me smile
Separate me from you, see me smile as I think of you
We will always be a together, you and me, red, green, and yellow
Yellow sun rising in the morning
Red sky, brightened by the yellow sun rising
Green grass, growing on the strength of the colors of the sky
Thank you all, my friends, my colors, for coming together to brighten my life, to make me smile, to share our colors."
"Alone we are Grounded
Together we can Fly"
This is the poem written by a new alum and it so beautifully encapsulates the essence of the survivors that came together for four days at our latest Wind River Cancer Wellness Retreat.
And, in a word, gratitude. This is how I feel this morning as I think of each of the people who came into our home this weekend and shared their very best selves with Dave and Shirley and myself.
You are each in my heart forever. Thank you.
