"From this hour I ordain myself loos'd of limits and imaginary lines, going where I list, my own master total and absolute, Listening to others, considering well what they say, Pausing, searching, receiving, contemplating, Gently, but with undeniable will, divesting myself of the holds that would hold me."
Walt Whitman (1819-92)
"When I look back now over my life and call to mind what I might have had simply for taking and did not take, my heart is like to break."
Akhenaton (d. c.1354 BC)

My Wish for You
I found the following on a blog named Bunny Burrow that I stumbled across while doing a bit of Blogexplosion surfing. (BTW, if you are a blogger and aren't a member of Blogexplosion yet, shame on you! Click the link in my sidebar and sign up!)
This apparently originally came from a card. But, I invite you to print it out and put it somewhere you will never misplace it, or send it to a friend. I know from experience that these things resurface when you need them the most.
My Wish for You
I wish you comfort...
the feeling that comes from knowing
how much others care for you,
the support of knowing there's
always someone you can call on
if you need to.
I wish you hope...
the strength that comes from knowing
that not even the deepest sadness can last forever,
the power that comes from believing
in the possibility that happiness lies ahead of you.
I wish you peace...
the calm that comes from trusting
in something beyond yourself,
the ease that comes from
surrendering worry and anxiety to a greater power.
These things I wish for you,
