  23. A moment of happiness, you and I sitting on the verandah, apparently two, but one in soul, you and I. We feel the flowing water of life here, you and I, with the garden’s beauty and the birds singing. The stars will be watching us, and we will show them what it is to be a thin crescent moon. You and I unselfed, will be together, indifferent to idle speculation, you and I. The parrots of heaven will be cracking sugar as we laugh together, you and I. In one form upon this earth, and in another form in a timeless sweet land. ~ Rumi ~

  24. I knew Jesse and David’s mother when she was a teenager. The woman I knew I have no doubt gave her heart and soul to her children and them to her. I pray the love and strength Alan and Betsi have along with memories of their gifts from God will help them carry on.
