Hanging By A Thread

People often ask me why I spend my time writing a blog every night......after all, I am only a songwriter and yoga teacher. :)  All of my life people have trusted me, they have told me their  stories and I have listened.
I have friends now all over the world, and honestly sometimes I feel in my heart that they need a hug or someone to listen to them or they just need to know that someone cares.

At this point in my life I have taught yoga to thousands of students, I have sung my songs to that many or more and I just wanted a way to keep in touch.  There are days in my life that I feel as though I am hanging on by a thread, I know that there many who feel the same way at some point in their lives.  I want to let them know, to let  you know that you are not alone.

At some point, each of us needs to know that some one cares, that some one is ill, or sad or lonely or angry......sometimes we need to know that there are others who are hanging on by a thread.  Hanging on by a a pretty scary visual......but at some point in our past or future or maybe today, each of us will do just that.  If there is someone in our lives, that we can talk with, e-mail or read their blog and know that they too have hung on by a thread and made it,  then maybe that will give us hope to hang on a little longer.

So tonight, if you ask my why I write this is not for the number of followers (I appreciate you all),
or the comments (I appreciate those too).......I write because I want you to know that thread can be quite strong and we have all hung from it at some time or another.


  1. Thank you for your words tonight Jilda.

  2. Thanks Jilda.
    Our words are all part of a big universal conversation that binds us together.
