“... if you connect with the blessings of your surroundings - the stillness, the magic, and the power - maybe that feeling can stay with you and you can go into your day with it.

In just this way, you stay you and I stay me, though we are informed by each other, just by virtue of how Spirit moves through all things" - Mark Nepo
