April is National Poetry Month, and in honor of that, I wanted to share a poem with you all; written by my dear friend Jon Podell when he was very sick & nearing the end of his life.

"Connection" by Jon Podell

7 billion people

One round planet

So much separation

Religion, gender, economics

All excuses

To create space

Connection is the universal energy

It’s the spark

The laugh

The look

The touch

When humans collide

Despair becomes hope

Joy awakens

The spirit breathes

The world rejoices

Where do we lose it?

How do we regain it?

We are all the same

Connection is the human gravity

Where humans spin around love

It’s available

But rarely accessed

Only with connection

Can love and hope thrive

Throughout the course of our lives, we make connections with so many people. At times, those are just passing connections, but, you will also build lifelong connections with people who were once complete strangers.

I’ve had the honor and privilege of making deep connections with so many individuals, many of whom began as clients. That’s one of the amazing things that I love about my job. My clients truly become family and I am invested and connected with them for a lifetime.

Xoxo, Sara
