Sunrise 6:33: Signs of new life

For the past month, the female Dawn Jogger has set out just before sunrise with the sound of Celtic music playing on her iPod. As the DJs' good friend - and rector - has worsened and death became imminent, in her heart she hoped that the music he loved would sing him to heaven. This morning it did; the call came soon after she came back home (eager to tell the male DJ that the first ducklings of the season has been spotted).

Mike Spillane was one of the most authentic people the female DJ has ever known. There was a quality about him that set him apart - and was difficult to describe in words but came through in feelings. He wrote: "In some sense everything that happens in our lives, from the mundane to the spectacular, is a part of one’s spiritual journey. It is an autobiography that we are all writing each day about how God is present in each moment of our lives and, more importantly, how we respond to that presence." He touched both DJs deeply and will live on with them...
