Fathers' Day Gratitude
I gratefully remember, am inspired and motivated by the unconditional love, endless hours of work and countless sacrifices my father made on my behalf. It's impossible to imagine the staggering amount of cumulative love and goodwill, handed down over the many, many, many generations of my ancestors, resulting in my own life. And in great part, because of that loving goodwill, we're blessed with the lives of our own children, and their children.
Paying love forward...
"We clasp the hands of those who go before us,
and the hands of those who come after us; we enter the little circle of each other's arms, and the larger circle of lovers whose hands are joined in a dance, and the larger circle of all creatures, passing in and out of life, who move also in a dance, to a music so subtle and vast that no one hears it except in fragments."
