    Wow. You always blow me away with your quiet wisdom. It’s wrapped in tissue paper and ribbon, but it goes straight to my spirit and really makes me think. Thank you for sowing such beauty in your garden for the rest of us to walk by and enjoy the fragrance of love and insight.

    ….into the soil of my heart
    this living seed drops
    like the magic bean
    sprouting a stalk whose
    end is golden.
    I SO needed this just now
    and feel it swelling already
    until I value each beat
    and patter we’re given.
    Oh this is rich, friend:)
    Cherish you I do,

    …then we would be so into it! I think we are for the most part, except when have to take our eyes off our smart phones? Hahaha! I don’t know! Everyone I meet down the hall is looking at their phones. Whatever are they doing. They are not talking, just staring into the phone.
