Rainbow Clothesline. This is my actual clothesline in Edgartown. My Sunday school teaching kit for years included these two-yard swatches of color; used for king's robes, water, grass, sky, sea, as well as various other story-telling props, or even for a classroom-sized rainbow, stretched from one side of the room to the other. One gray Vineyard day I thought, "I need a rainbow."  I noticed the cloths, retired and folded up on my bookshelf, and decided to make myself a rainbow on my clothesline. I then realized, "What day don't  I need a rainbow?" So I left it there for a couple of years, until the cloths finally frayed, faded and wore out. I made a 2' x 3' poster of this image that hangs on my Brookline kitchen wall.

    I listened to your story on "The Journey Home" this past Saturday. I was able to listen to the whole broadcast due to an extended commute from my job in Boston to my home in southern New Hampshire. I csn truly say it was time well-spent as I found your journey both fascinating and inspiring. From one who struggles every day (and I'm certain I'm not alone in that), inspiration in any form is always welcome. Thank you for taking the time to share it with the,rest of us.

    Dear Sara:
    Thank you for your story and life on the Journey Home. I was raised Jewish and was baptized when I was 20. I was delighted to hear your journey, not unlike a few Catholics I know. Before I became Catholic I was planning to become an environmental photographer. God had a different plan. Have been living as a hermit for some time. Again, it was a joy to hear your story. Thank you.
    With prayer, Br. Richard

    Dear Sara, unfortunately I didn't turn on EWTN till 2 minutes to 1 today CST so I didn't get to see your show but I heard your website and checked it out. I too am a music therapist since 1970. I've quickly learned your Town Clock song to sing to my grandkids. Would also like your permission to sing it to the Day Care Centers I visit... it will be easy to teach kids the refrain. I'm a volunteer many places since I retired last year, so this is a cute number to add to my songs. E-mail me if this is a problem. Peace & blessings, Linda Kuehl

    What an incredible journey you have had and thank you so much for sharing.
    I used to have connections on the Vineyard and that was fun hearing you.
    Boston is my favorite city and I used to visit the pubs.
    Welcome home again. I also just returned to the Catholic Church.

    Hi Sara--I was delighted to tune in to my weekly visit with Marcus Grodi and find you as his guest. You did a wonderful job sharing your story. I was enthralled. And I wish I had appreciated you more in being your neighbor all those years ago when our moms were dear friends. Nancy

    Sara,
    I enjoyed seeing you on EWTN's Journey Home last night (Jan. 13). You have such a love for life. My wife and I are also great fans of Irish folk music. Thank you for sharing your fascinating story. Welcome home.

    I enjoyed your "Journey Home" tonight. Was raised by a father from a Free Methodist background, and a mother who had no interest in religion. Best friend was Presbyterian minister's daughter. Church two blocks away, so as a child became and was very involved with Presbyterian. Fast forward...I was a Music major in college (pipe organ emphasis). My organ professor was the organist at a large Presbyterian church, and also played organ at the Jewish Synogogue. She had back surgery during my college years, and asked me to fill in for her at the Synogogue for one year. It was an incredible experience. Fast forward again...I married a Conservative Lutheran (Missouri Synod), and became a member of that church. I also have a heart of love for the Catholic faith and watch EWTN every day. So, of course, much of what you said resonated with me.

    what an absolutely delightful story. As a born again catholic [74 Irish catholic] I have stayed with the faith however, never had that relationship with Christ. [felt like a hypocrite but alas I knew I had to change, so I prayed that I would meet the confessor I needed. I had a 250 mile trip and had mapped out where the churches were, First church I went to; bingo; [a catholic word] was the one. I left with a new friend, Christ, and then I learned why in your journey. Isn't is great?
