Conversations that matter...

authentic conversations, counselling, bayside, st kilda east, elwood, relationships

Life for me is about relationships

And within this

Increasingly I have an appreciation for the conversations that matter

Yet I note the courage it takes for me to share the truth of my experience

How I stumble on my own words

As I struggle to be in the depth of my feeling.

Where I sense the edge of life meeting the edge of death

An urgency grows

In a hope that the people who matter to me most,

Get to feel their place in this world,

In which we are all held.
