I want to pause and acknowledge you, dear visitor.
It's amazing to read the tracks of my visitors - from Indonesia and England, New Zealand and Peru, Ireland, Pakistan, Greece, plus at least twelve other countries. I am reminded that we are all connected in ways deeper than we know.
As Pablo Neruda wrote, ". . . to feel the affection that comes from those whom we do not know, from those unknown to us, who are watching over our sleep and solitude, over our dangers and our weaknesses - that is something still greater and more beautiful because it widens out the boundaries of our being, and unites all living things."
