Vow to live in such a way that ...

Leonor Fini - Transparance

In the pre-dawn silence, the truest of sounds can be heard.

In the pre-dawn stillness, the deepest of connections can be felt.

As the sun rises, the hand of almighty gratitude is offered to you yet again.

Take it. And seize the opportunity to celebrate life for another day.

The wheel will continue to turn, and night will come again soon enough.

And when she does, she will envelope you with even more love and more beauty.

This is what we have been given.

Remember those who are not so fortunate.

Vow to live in such a way that your very breathing touches them as well.

Sooner or later, the experience of seemingly endless woe arrives for all of us.

The wheel will continue to turn.

Turn with it, not against it.
