the original you and i

What June did for me was post signs along the way, lift me when I was weak, encourage me when I was discouraged, and love me when I was alone and felt unlovable. She is the greatest woman I have ever known. Nobody else, except my mother, comes close. June said she knew me – knew the kernel of me, deep inside, beneath the drugs and deceit and despair and anger and selfishness, and knew my loneliness. She said she could help me. She said we were soulmates, she and I, and that she would fight for me with all her might, however she could. She did that by being my companion, friend, and lover, and by praying for me. June is a prayer warrior like none I’ve known.

We connect somewhere between here and heaven.


  1. Gotta love June....where did you find this image?
    I know you're from way farther south, but did you ever get to visit the Carter Family Fold?

  2. I found it by browsing Tumblr for posts related to June Carter Cash. I'm obsessed with them as of late. And no, I never have visited it. But I wanna!
