Update on Harry Manx and the Mohan Veena

Just wanted to post this follow-up on the Harry Manx story: “Unique guitar taken at O’Hare; its owner gets lots of love in return.” This headline comes from a heartwarming story in the Chicago Tribune, which details how his Facebook post about the missing Mohan Veena has received 3.5 million views.

Three people offered to make him a new Mohan Veena, and he already has one on the way from India. Chicago locals are scouring pawn shops and Craigslist. Tens of thousands of people have sent Harry personal messages of love, prayer and support. He has felt such an outpouring of love that “I sort of think it’s a fair trade,” said Manx. “He can have the Veena, I’ll take the love I have here. That’s probably worth more than the instrument. At the end of the day, it’s just wood.”

You can read the full story by clicking here. I just wanted to share a follow-up so that all the people who sent love, Reiki, prayers, Runes and kind words to Harry would know that such things add up. As David said this morning, “When bad things happen to good people, the world gives them an enormous outpouring of love.” I also noted that it was Harry’s vulnerable heartfelt plea that touched people. Baring your heart takes courage, but El Mundo Bueno rewards that sort of thing. We are loved. Deeply, deeply loved.

    As I finished reading this update, a cardinal began to sing outside my window. A songbird’s homage to another Maker of Music. A beautiful update, Laura. Thank you for letting us know. Namaste!
