i carry these words 

“As I read your words, I can feel your flow, @artistnicholerae. Both you and @naturallyrandikay share a special energy. And you can connect across many frequencies at the same time. Not spoken yet heard; sharing feeling without touching; and touching with vision and with light. Something very special going on. Thanks for keeping that New York City light on. Hope to see both of you again, soon. Sometimes we just have to click we are there. Wherever and whenever. Looking forward to sharing another hug again” - Jeff. Pulver
