The Best Anti-Depressant Ever

I received this email yesterday, out of the blue, from someone I don't know:

Dear Jude,

It's been a long time, years probably, since I read a poem -- the best poem I've ever read -- a truly inspired piece, and all I can recall is that I thought it was written by someone named Jude, and it was the only thing on a website when his name was clicked on from Miss Snark's blog. Was it yours? If so, would you show me where to find it so I may read it again, and again?

She was talking about this, the very first entry on my blog, a poem I wrote the day after my dear aunt passed away.

This is the kind of thing writers live for. Thank you, Email Sender, for making my day.

Jude! Talk about kicking my eyes into "mist-mode". Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. And isn't it funny how the universe always works in that chronic shroud of mystery?

What a nice way to boost your spirits in the form of a mysterious fan. Cool.

Thanks, Kath. Yeah, it was just the pick-me-up I needed.

Sometimes, I think readers have some cosmic sense, and they know when we need a kind word. :-)

Maybe so, Spy. This one was REALLY cosmic, because it's been two and a half years since I posted that poem.
