Note: When I invite you to imagine the air you breathe in as azure blue in this week’s podcast, the water in this beautiful photo is the color I am thinking about. It’s my all-time and always favorite color in the universe!

Surgery. Back sometime soon…

Hello Listeners,

I’m heading out in a few minutes to have surgery on my shoulder. Your prayers are welcome. I hope to get back to the podcast (and fly fishing!) soon. In the meantime, I encourage you to make use of the Search field on my webpage to find an episode or two that would be helpful for your meditation and prayer. There are more than 300 accessible in my archives. Be well.

And Deepest Peace,

Todd

Photo by my childhood friend, Hugh Hood, who died in a car wreck last week. Just a few days before he died I asked if I could share some of his photos on my podcast page. He was so kind to say yes! I love you Hugh. We will never forget you and all of the joy and laughter you brought to all of us.*
