We are connected to our lives by the bright filaments of hope and inspiration that keep us alert and infused with healthy creativity and joyful planning.

Unawareness of how bound all of us are to our deepest wishes and desires is expressed through an unkind word or thoughtless gesture or comment to another that can so easily sever these cords of light from the purity of our hearts.

All of us feel the pull of a dearly held ambition, so if you are privileged enough to glimpse the guiding star of another, do not judge, but be gentle in your counsel and warm in your encouragement.
