Lullaby and Good Night
To get to read today’s entry on Beyond, at the wee hours of the morning, when I can’t sleep, has given me just what I needed. A good cry.
And amazing company - a lullaby.
And now I do not feel so frozen inside from some cluster of anxiety (we’re all living through these days) - will democracy hold? is the horror going to stop? which of my loved ones gets Covid next and will it be mild or scary-bad?
Now, after reading Beyond, I feel softer and released and can curl back into my blankets to finish my rest because your introducing me to Casey Mulligan Walsh’s writings has helped me find my own nuggets of strength and reassurance.
Her writing is breathtaking.
Thank you Jane for what you’ve created in your Substack. It keeps me reading and soothed and inspired.
Congratulations on your 6-month anniversary!
Beyond is beautiful. xx
"She would say that life requires nothing short of bravery," and she breaks our hearts with words that let us know we are not alone. Thank you Casey.
This is heart wrenching and beautiful. I love how you tell us just enough. Parts of the story, but not all. This withholding seems to mimic life: we just don't know what is going to happen and once we do know, we still don't know the elusive Why. Thank you for this.
Jane,I think at some point we’ll need to spotlight You and the journey of the writer’s convos in your own ‘stack :) I’ll throw my hat in the ring to do that at the 6-month mark.
Thanks for the convos!
Congrats! -- ac

Casey brings a new dimension to a familiar theme. Beautifully done.
Casey, you've achieved here a beautiful balance of heartbreak, stoicism, and self-protection. It's a marvel--thank you for sharing yourself with the world.
Oh, Casey. xoxoxox
Happy six-month anniversary JANE!!!
