Namaste

“She quietly expected great things to happen to her, and no doubt that’s one of the reasons why they did.” –Zelda Fitzgerald

…and sometimes I have these magic moments when we laugh straight into each other’s eyes and connect beyond words, recognition of our human selves on the most basic level – that beyond our differences in language, culture, age, skin color, or gender we are just two people truly seeing in each other all that being human has in common. These are the moments I live for.

    I love this moment you spoke of-

    =

    …each connection you encounter, create and embrace will bring forth their soul as they journey forward in their lives- and they will know you forevermore …

    … and of course I love the “Kids” in the hood double entendre moment … 🙂

    • Thanks, Joe. It feels good to see and be seen, doesn’t it? Sheer magic.

      • Yes- With Kids (goats included) I feel they are more apt to connect and make the connections you speak of. Even when they don’t feel it in return they hold to the hope that someone will see them and when adults make the effort to connect.. magical.
