Just a thought… Deep conversations with the right person are priceless. [Author unknown]

I hope that this day finds you with a peaceful heart, a warm cup of whatever wakes you up or soothes your mind, and some time to share with me.

A little while back, before the world turned upside down, I was invited to talk with a man I think you may know and remember from his work nationally on CBC television and radio. He’s found a new calling – quite literally – as an ordained spiritual director and host of the podcast “Not That Kind of Rabbi.”

As we find ourselves in this holiest of weeks on many religious calendars (with Ramadan beginning April 23rd), I thought I’d wait until today to share with you our talk.

I’ve had the chance to sit down with Ralph before in what seems a different life: I was hosting my television show on Rogers and he was a guest. But this was like no other interview in which I’ve taken part: we delved into the spiritual, the reality of life after loss and so very much more. Ralph is a kind, intelligent, giving and compassionate host and it was my honour to share this time with him.

So settle in, grab a cup of whatever soothes your soul and enjoy this episode. I certainly did. I literally had to sit and catch my breath to ground myself when it was done. I hope you get as much out of my talk with Ralph as we did.

I’ll be back with you tomorrow with a tree that mother nature has adorned in a very special way for Easter.
